1133. Berlin- Altes Museum





















Dear John,

"Two elements must be distinguished precisely: the one intended
to work for practical necessity and the one that is meant only to
express directly the pure idea" (Karl Friedrich Schinkel)

This very idea of architecture influenced years later the work of
Mies van der Rohe with the ideological opposition of form and
function.

Best wishes,
R
