“A mass is enveloped in its surface, a surface which is divided up according to the directing and generating lines of the mass; and this gives the mass individuality.” Le Corbusier, Vers Un Architecture (Towards A New Architecture), John Rodker, London 1931.
“While more superficial stylistic changes are easily grafted onto the façade like applied icons, such changes in elevation are never so fundamental as changes in plan and section; plan and section have been, since the development of orthoganol projection, the repositories of the animating principles that define architecture in the classical Western sense.” Peter Eisenman, Aspects of Modernism: Maison Dom-ino and the Self-Referential Sign, Oppositions 15/16 1978.
