Architecture Puzzler #228
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Tadao Ando, and Friedrich Nietzsche are each credited with a quotation below. Who made which statement?
A. In architecture, the pride of man, his triumph over gravitation, his will to power assume visible form. Architecture is a sort of oratory of power by means of form.
B. For the meaning and right of every age, including our own, consists solely in providing the spirit with the necessary prerequisites for its existence.
C. Architecture should be eternal. It has to remain somewhere and the question is where. To me, it should remain in the heart and spirit of the person who is experiencing it.
