“When stone is used in a wall, the aim is not to evoke some notion of rock, but to build a clear-cut slab—made of stone because stone is a good and durable and texturally pleasant material,… It should be clear that this is a wall built by a mason, executing drawings with dimensions and a given geometry; it is not a grotto or part of a romantic anachronism.

“The structure is simultaneously developed with the plan. The thinking about form and detail is all part of the same process: the design. I am as much interested in the smallest detail as in the whole structure.”

— Marcel Breuer. from Cranston Jones, captions and introduction.
