"Pure architecture is a crystal.When purity is achieved, architecture is crystalline: magical, complete, exclusive, self-sufficient, immaculate, absolute, definitive, like a crystal.It could be a cube, a rectangular block, a pyramid, an obelisk, or a tower: all forms erected and finite.The architecture shuns the incomplete forms ... Architecture has a beginning and an end.The architecture stands upright. " (Gio Ponti).
