Ca me fait penser à l'explication de Philip Johnson à propos de l'unité de brique de la Glass House..."The cylinder, made of the same brick as the platform from which it springs, forming the main motif of the house was not derived from Mies, but rather from a burned-out wooden village I saw once where nothing was left but the foundations and chimneys of brick. Over the chimney I slipped a steel cage with a glass skin. The chimney forms the anchor."Philip Johnson, Writings. New York: Oxford University Press, 1979.
