QUOTE_Kahn_Fisher-House« As urbanists and architect of metropolitan densities we must think first of building sections for the qualities of sunlight and the dynamics of diagonal sectional movement. The old conditions of linear perspective (from planimetric projections) disappear behind us as modern urban life presents multiple horizons and multiple vanishing points. The further affirmation of the diagonal and the vertical in new spatial experience is the challenge of the 21st century metropolitan density. »

eisenman_house3« An hour, once it lodges in the queer element of the human spirit, may be stretched to fifty or a hundred times its clock length ; on the other hand, an hour may be accurately represented on the time-piece of the mind by one second.
This extraordinary discrepancy between time on the clock and time in the mind is less known than it should be, and deserves fuller investigation. »
