Buildings


The job of buildings is to improve human relations: architecture must ease them, not make them worse.

I cannot think of a better quote for this image, it's so true... the building on the front is a concert hall in Linz and is a quite beautifully made building with a good relation to the Danube and the grass, lots of people hang out there. by contrast, the building on the back, the tall one, is just awful... it's an office building from the 50's and makes impossible any sort of human relationships. Architecture truly has an important role in people.

Glad you like the match Luisa!
Yes, people sitting on the grass and around gave me this quote idea:) It really is like that, our buildings and streets, appartments and offices affect our lives, our actions and moods. And we are often not aware how much.
