“Our predecessors … considered questions of qualit in their treatises … Boullee’s architecture of shadows and Palladio’s search for place or locus are not merely autobiographies.  For it is always the idea of place, and hence light and time and imagination, that recurs in the treatise writers as that which can modify and finally be adopted in architecture … Of course, the quality of things presupposes measurement.  Yet how one can MEASURE buildings, if an amphitheatre can become a city, and a theater a house?  – Aldo Rossi
