The Creator's Words
"A building quite devoid of ornament may convey a noble and dignified sentiment by virtue of mass and proportion."
"That which exists in spirit ever seeks and finds its visible counterpart in form, its visible image...a living thought, a living form."
"...the architect who combines in his being the powers of vision , of imagination, of intellect, of sympathy with human need and the power to interpret them in a language vernacular and trueis he who shall create poems in stone..."
Louis H. Sullivan. from Paul Heyer. Architects on Architecture: New Directions in America. p20, 21.
