“Architecture has such profound effects on the human being, on place, on human consciousness, and ultimately on the world, that it is far too important to bother with stylistic means of appealing to fashion. It can have such powerful negative effects that we must also think, can it, if consciously worked with, have equally strong positive effects?
“Anything with such powerful effects has responsibilities – power, if not checked by responsibility, is a dangerous thing! Architecture has responsibilities to minimize adverse biological effects on occupants, responsibilities to be sensitive to and act harmoniously in the surroundings, responsibilities to the human individualities who will come in contact with the building, responsibilties not only in the visual aesthetic sphere and through the outer sences but also to the intangible but perceptible ‘sprit of place.'”
