DEATH OF AMERICAN ARCHITECTURE


AMERICAN ARCHITECTURE


It is an enthusiasm of which I am not ashamed, as its object is to improve the taste of my countrymen, to increase their reputation, and to reconcile them to the respect of the world and procure them its praise.”

Thomas Jefferson in a letter to Madison (1785)


FUNCTION AND FORM


The form, American architecture, will mean, if it ever succeeds in meaning anything, American life.”

Louis H. Sullivan, Kindergarten Chats (1901)

AMERICAN DEMOCRACY


The artificiality of our mechanized society is hopelessly drifting toward a bureaucracy so top-heavy that the bureaucracy of Soviet Russia will seem honest and innocent by comparison.”
