House Built

Famous quotes containing the words house and/or built:

    This house was designed and constructed with the freedom of stroke of a forester’s axe, without other compass and square than Nature uses.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Indigenous to Minnesota, and almost completely ignored by its people, are the stark, unornamented, functional clusters of concrete—Minnesota’s grain elevators. These may be said to express unconsciously all the principles of modernism, being built for use only, with little regard for the tenets of esthetic design.
    —Federal Writers’ Project Of The Wor, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
