"Arts enters in."

“Architects everywhere have


recognized the needs of...a tool
which may be put in the hands
of creator of forms, with the
simple aim...of making the bad
difficult and the good easy”

Architecture is a brilliant, orthodox


and original jigsaw puzzles of masses
combined in light. Our eyes are
created to see forms in light; lights
and shadow reveal the forms. Cubes
cones, balls, cylinder and pyramid are
primary shapes that lights so
excellently reveal; the picture they
give to us is clear and perspicuous
without indecision. That is why they
are beautiful forms.”

“Architecture is the masterly, correct


and magnificent play of masses
brought together n light. Our eyes are
made to see forms in light; light and
shade reveal this forms.”
