79. Berlin, Neues Hansaviertel, Aalto Haus

Dear Anna,

"Architecture has an ulterior motive which always lurks,
so to speak, around the corner: the thought of creating 
a paradise. It is the only purpose of our houses If we did 
not always carry this thought around with us all our houses would become simpler and more trivial and life...would it be at all worth living? Each house, each product of architecture that is worthwhile as a symbol 
is an endeavor to show that we want to build an earthly paradise for people" (Alvar Aalto)
I couldn't have put it better myself.
