What is architecture?

“What is architecture?  The crystalline expression of man’s noblest thoughts, his ardour, his humanity, his faith, his religion!  That is what it once was!  But who of those living in our age that is cursed with practicality still comprehends its all-embracing, soul-giving nature?”

Walter Gropius and Bruno Taut

New Ideas On Architecture, 1919
