Being boring (or borigness) has been one of the qualities of architecture an architect desesperately tries to avoid. Not to provoke (or at least try to provoke) some reaction from one´s audience is to admit to a lack of ideas or an absence of creativity. In Kind of Boring, Paul Preissner rejects the idea that architecture should demand anything from its audience. The "boring and dumb" architecture documented in this book leaves us alone. In this way, the work of Paul Preissner Architects produces a conceptual space, a meaning independent of our relationship to the work; we can only understand (or missunderstand) it.
