Much more material needs to be added to this article. Eisenman's work early work in the New York Five period is very different from his more recent works, such as the Wexner Center. Also, I know this is very hard, but it's critical that photos be included with architecture articles. The picture already associated with the article is actually one of Eisenman's early works; quite different than is contemporary work.
Rejection of Theory
The last line of this article says that, as of 2004, Eisenman has rejected theory. Traditionally, Eisenman is one of the more theoretical deconstructivists, along with Tschumi. He has written many deeply philosophical works about architecture, inspired by Jacques Derrida (who wrote an essay called "Why Peter Eisenman writes such good books"). The Peter Eisenman I know writes lengthy texts about his buildings, which arguably are only interpretable with these texts. Eisenman seems to be the very essence of a theoretical architect.
So, I'm curious about that last sentence. I'm not saying it's wrong; I assume something Eisenman has said or written has convinced the writer that Eisenman rejected theory. However, this has to be cited since it's a huge development in Eisenman's architecture. One sentence is not sufficient. So, to whoever wrote that sentence (or anyone else who knows about it), please add more information. Thanks. ---PhifeAlQuest
One Recent Work
The Aronoff Center at the University of Cincinnati is one of his more recent works. I went to UC so at some point I may come back and expand on this. I'm really new here. Let me know if I should be doing anything different. Thanks. --Eric Jack Nash 02:54, August 12, 2005 (UTC)

Not enough imformation
Hello my name is Peter Oppong and I've been trying to find a solid information on Peter Eisenman for my research paper and project paper and I've been looking throught a lot of websites to find out about his vivid life, for example how many kids he's got, what inspired him to become the person he is today, is he married or divorced? If you can find me that information that would be very helpful. firstname.lastname@example.org Thank You.
Passage should be cited
"Despite his unconventional ideas and ostensibly radical artistic statements, Eisenman has spoken out against the political left. He has touted his connections to conservative clients and gone so far as to suggest that progressive ideas have never produced architecture of value."
Article is not in depth
There needs to be a fuller discussion of Eisenman's theories and the connections to Jean Baudrillard. His largest contributions are in post modern architectural theory.
And please remove the irrelevent information - bowties, disputes with clients. The main ideas of Eisenman's theories and architecture were not covered before topics shifted to why Eisenman was not successful.
Finally, it is too biased and subjective. There is an obvious spin against Eisenman. Very poorly written in general.
This article is badly written that I doubt everything that it has to say. (Unless it is a very clever critique of how deconstuctivists think!) "While his apathy towards the recent "green" movement is considered polarizing or "out-of-touch", this architect-artist (with drawings held by major collections) was also an early advocate of computer aided design." Is this sentence about PE and the green movement, PE and art, or PE and CAD? Or is it just a pastiche of mental fragments. You should erase this article and start over. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:51, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
