Everything else that fulfils a function is to be excluded from the domain of art.
- Adolf Loos

Changes in the traditional way of building are only
permitted if they are an improvement.
Otherwise stay with what is traditional,
for truth, even if it be hundreds of years old has
a stronger inner bond with us than the lie that walks by our side.

Man loves everything that satisfies his comfort.
He hates everything that wants to draw him out of his
acquired and secured position and that disturbs him.
Thus he loves the house and hates art.
