Quote of the day

"A building’s architectonic quality is not determined by the professionalism with which it was built, but by the part it plays in architectural discussion. A building only becomes architecture when it is discussed; i.e. when it plays a part in cultural discussion."

~ Carel Weeber quoted by Van Dijk and De Graaf (1990)
