Gaudi vs Le Corbusier
When Antoni met Charles-Édouard…
Gaudi: There are no straight lines or sharp corners in nature.
Le Corbusier: A house is a machine for living in. Form follows function. The quickest way from A to B is a straight line. A machine has straight lines.
Gaudi: It may look like a straight line but there are many corners on the roads to Rome.
Le Corbusier: Putting it another way, does not this post hold up the wisteria?
Gaudi: Which is more beautiful: the post or the wisteria?
There may be no definitive answer here but you might conclude that Gaudi is the wisteria and Le Corbusier was the post?
