Statements for history by Kevin Roche( Visual )

It has a structure, form, syntax and style, and says something about our time, our culture, our preoccupations, our political society, our honesty and our sophistication. Architects have the peculair situation that while they think they are building buildings, they are in fact making statements for history, and if they thought about it in those terms, they might be a little more cautious, careful and thorough."
