Discussion Hunting Lodge Commentary

The Creator's Words

"In matters of art, it is not a question of asking what previously known useful things can be brought to the task. Rather a pure idea of the entire formation of the work arises in the soul of the architect. This idea is produced entirely from within himself, quite independently of the existing world. He feels the most profound destiny of the building immediately in his own being. Only at this point does the question arise: what are the means necessary to realise such an idea produced in total freedom?"

— Karl Friedrich Schinkel. from Michael Snodin, ed. Karl Friedrich Schinkel: A Universal Man. p7, 50.
