—  Justus Dahinden Swiss architect 1925

Räume, die Empfindungen auslösen, verändern das Verhalten des Menschen. Die Verhaltensbeeinflussung des Menschen durch die gestaltete Umwelt ist eine qualitative Zielsetzung des architektonischen Entwurfs.

„Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.“

—  Albert Einstein German-born physicist and founder of the theory of relativity 1879 - 1955

1920s, Viereck interview (1929)
Contexto: I claim credit for nothing. Everything is determined, the beginning as well as the end, by forces over which we have no control. It is determined for the insect as well as for the star. Human beings, vegetables or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible player.

„We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the luminous interval life.“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, livro The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Contexto: We come from a dark abyss, we end in a dark abyss, and we call the luminous interval life. As soon as we are born the return begins, at once the setting forth and the coming back; we die in every moment. Because of this many have cried out: The goal of life is death! But as soon as we are born we begin the struggle to create, to compose, to turn matter into life; we are born in every moment. Because of this many have cried out: The goal of ephemeral life is immortality! In the temporary living organism these two streams collide … both opposing forces are holy. It is our duty, therefore, to grasp that vision which can embrace and harmonize these two enormous, timeless, and indestructible forces, and with this vision to modulate our thinking and our action.
