    This mesa plain had an appearance of great antiquity, and of incompleteness; as if, with all the materials for world-making assembled, the Creator had desisted, gone away and left everything on the point of being brought together, on the eve of being arranged into mountain, plain, plateau. The country was still waiting to be made into a landscape.
    —Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    A house is a machine for living in.
    Le Corbusier [Charle Édouard Jeanne] (1887–1965)
