I feel this is very important for us to have serene buildings because our civilization is chaotic as it is, you see; our whole machine age has brought about a chaos that has to be somehow counterbalanced, I think.
More Minoru Yamasaki quotes :
We build buildings which are terribly restless. And buildings don't go anywhere. They shouldn't be restless.Minoru Yamasaki
So what we have tried to do in our later buildings is to try to be completely consistent, as a painter is consistent or as a sculptor is consistent. Architecture also must be very consistent.Minoru Yamasaki
