One of many things I will probably post.
For today, here is Paul Shepheard in What is Architecture discussing the human condition:
“Our simple siblings the chimps, who, when it rains, sit there in the downpour trying to keep the ground dry with their bums, with the rain dribbling down their flat faces, all because they haven’t figured out how to build umbrellas.
Umbrellas are a mutant form of the desire to stay dry; I think that umbrellas are part of architecture.”
