Design Quote from 1952:

Photography by Amanda Eubanks

“Through [an] understanding of the world we live in, the history we have known, [the individual] can show the way to the future and show it for people now. In the continuity of history of which we are a part, he must above all, understand the motivating forces which caused the creations of his past. To do creative work, he must reject the vast heritage of the mediocre, and find the true values within the human expression of the past. He will then realize that these are the values of all men, all times and all societies.”

– Henry Hill, Architectural Record June 1952
