The Pritzker Prize-winning architect on what he’s re-reading and the classical musician he’s fascinated by.

Reading I’m revisiting, as I do about every decade, William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying and Franz Kafka’s The Trial. I’m fascinated with the enigma; there’s something so difficult to grasp in both of them. They’re indecipherable, and they contain endless intrigue.
