Elisabet Sahtouris: “A biology that sees all nature as co-evolving holons [living entities] in holarchies [interdependent embeddedness] will quickly reveal much about humanity itself as one such holon-containing its own holarchy of individuals, families, organizations, communities, nations and world. Through this understanding of ourselves, we will gain profound insights on where we succeed and where we fail as a living system.”
Henry Plummer: “One is solid and static, the other illuminates and animates. Architects through the ages have preoccupied themselves with how to marry these two opposing aspects of architecture, a marriage that at its finest transforms natural light itself into a building material.”
Peter Zumthor: “I’ve said goodbye to the overworked notion that architecture has to save the world.”
