“I have hope, I have optimism. It’s the dimension within the force that history has already shown us, the force that exists in popular culture. We are not ready, and we do not wish to be ready. We count on this eternal incompleteness. We’re born and know we’re going to die. And why don’t we get discouraged? What is this enthusiasm? It’s the certainty that we are not born to die; we are born to begin. Each of us begins everything.”

“Architecture doesn’t aim at an aesthetic unconnected to social reality. On the contrary, it can only exist while connected to that reality and, alongside it, triumph in a tremendous adventure, which is living.”
