389. Eglise Notre-Dame du Raincy



Dear Berthold,

"The framework is to the building what the skeleton is
to the animal; as the animal's skeleton, measured,
balanced, symmetrical, contains and supports the most
various and most variously situated organs, so much the
structure of a building be composite, measured,
balanced and also symmetrical" (Auguste Perret)
True, but with some cultural limitations, don't you
agree?

Regards.
