Imre Macovecz, hungarian architect
"I believe that the original intention of our architecture was to create an architectural connection between the sky and the earth, a connection which enlightens an expresses man's movement and position, to create a magic, weaving an invisible spell on its surroundings.

We try to summon up the architecture of a mythical era. Our aim is to counteract the subsensible spell of technical civilization using supersensible imaginative power." Imre Makovecz 1985
