Juxtapose  

[juhkstuh-pohz, juhk-stuhpohz]  

 (v.) to place close together or side by side, esp. for comparison or contrast  

“When drawings of the main buildings I have designed in the last five years are juxtaposed, the fact that they all involve the pursuit of certain configurations is obvious to anyone.” 

 ~ Yoshio Taniguchi
