“To design a whole district, it is wrong to create individual units and place them on a
chess board. Rather, an overall concept should be devised designating which areas are
to be built, which left free and how available space is to be used. Only then should the
architect come in, architecture should be alive and conceived as such. That is why I don’t
really like the game very much as the individual units can neither be turned nor placed in
a mirror position.”
