But we want an order that gives to each thing its proper place, and we want to give each thing what is suitable to its nature.
We would do this so perfectly that the world of our creations will blossom from within. More we do not want; more we cannot do.
Nothing can unlock the aim and meaning of our work better than the profound words of St. Augustine:
“Beauty is the radiance of Truth”.
—Mies van der Rohe - 1938 ( Renata Hejduk & Jim Williamson The Religious Imagination In Modern And Contemporary Architecture )
