Another Master of Light


It seems many of my favorite architects are masters of light such as Louis Kahn. Moshe Safdie is another master of light in my opinion and a great all around architect.

He who seeks truth shall find beauty
He who seeks beauty shall find vanity
He who seeks order shall find gratification
He who seeks gratification shall be disappointed
He who considers himself the servant of fellow beings shall find the joy of self-expression
He who seeks self-expression shall fall into the pit of arrogance
Arrogance is incompatible with nature
Through nature, the nature of the universe and the nature of man, we shall seek truth
If we seek truth, we shall find beauty.-Moshe Safdie
