"We should stop thinking of our individual buildings. We should take the advice my father gave me, 'Always look at the next larger thing.' When the problem is a building, we should look at the spaces and relationships that that building creates with others....In the process [the architect] will gradually formulate strong convictions about outdoor space―the beauty of the space between the buildings―and if he does, he will carry his conviction on to his most important challenge―how to build cities."
