Mies on Technology

from some old guy  who smoked way too much cigars in the 1950s

“Architecture depends on its time. It is the crystallization of its inner structure, the slow unfolding of its form. That is the reason why technology and architecture are so closely related. Our real hope is that they will grow together, that some day the one will be the expression of the other.”
