283. Torres Kio, Madrid


Dear John,

"I like the thought that what we are to do on this earth
is embellish it for its greater beauty, so that oncoming
generations can look back to the shapes we leave here
and get the same thrill that I get in looking back at theirs
- at the Parthenon, at Chartres Cathedral."
(Philip Johnson)
I rather think the project for Puerta Europa of Antoni
Bonet might have been more memorable than the towers
that were built...

Best
R
