Scully on Architecture

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 10:18 PM

"It is not easy to set aside firmly seated preconceptions
in order to look at old material with fresh eyes —
hardest of all to face facts which, if true, are 
so obvious and simple that they should patently have been 
recognized long before."

— Vincent Scully, preface to the 1969 edition of
The Earth, the Temple, and the Gods: Greek Sacred Architecture

See also, in this journal, Slave Boy.

This post was suggested by the following eulogy:

"All work and no play . . . ." — The Shining
