Lot Essay

"Good design takes advantage of all the developments in technical facilities and materials. It accepts and uses the findings and revelations of other men. Yet good design's essential response is toward nature... to natural forms and tendencies that the designer perceives, reacts to, even stumbles on in his investigation of an idea."
- Harry Bertoia
