I greatly enjoyed reading your 1988 review of the original Decon Show. Now I must apologize profusely because I repeated all this stuff in my 2004 book "Anti-architecture and Deconstruction", without ever having read your review. You are right that it was lost. Funny how inconvenient truths tend to get lost, just like the file on Geli Raubal's mysterious murder.

This was an excellent piece. It should be included in every anthology of architectural criticism/theory from here on out!
