“I was lucky not to go to school but to travel with my backpack. I’ve been traveling from twenty to twenty-two, to Balkans, Greece, Turkey and Asia Minor.
I’ve been traveling for seven months using all kind of transportation, looking for architecture. I saw temples, farms, houses, buildings and some small ones made of stone. All of them let me understanding the evolution of the spontaneous structures. The architecture’s meaning comes out from them.”
[Le Corbusier, translated from “L’Art décoratif d’aujourd’hui”, Editions G. Crès, Paris 1925]
