I understand that in an MVC app I would access the WCF  and then pass the object to a view and use razor to display it. But I'm writing a web pages app and I'd like to use Razor and WCF.
I'm trying to figure out where to put the code to define the objects from the WCF and use the it to fill them before I use razor to display them.
Two questions; Am I crazy to try to use razor in a non MVC app? If I'm not crazy, how do I do it?

Razor is a view engine just like webforms. So the two are alternative of each other hence razor is not supported within webforms

Razor is supported in a non MVC app. Any file with either a vbhtml or cshtml extension will be rendered using the Razor engine. But I don't think it's a great idea to mix aspx and vbhtml in the same project.
