An early sketch of this one.

A dreamer of houses sees them everywhere, and anything can act as a germ to set him dreaming about them.

Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space

If I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.

Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space

A house is a machine for living in.

Le Corbusier, Towards a New Architecture

“If you chop off appendixes by thousands with a machine, your patients will die, and if you push families into rows of identical houses, then something in those families will die, especially if they are poor.  The people will grow dull and dispirited in their houses, and their imagination will shrivel up.”

Hassan Fathy, Architecture for the Poor
