Una frase suelta atribuida a Alberti

"Those who say that forms of structures must not be tied down to any rules of art are the ignorant who despise what they do not understand" Leon Batista Alberti

Fragmento de una reseña del Modulor por Sibyl Moholy-Nagy en 1957

“The survival of man in more than physical matter, is guaranteed only by the grace of genius, by the chance appearance of a creative energy, transcending the achievements of the group. The measure of this genius is given by its singularity that lacks patterns adaptable to generalization. Schoenberg in music, Joyce in literature, Mondrian in painting, and Le Corbusier in architecture stand alone in this century”.
