“But self denial is imposed upon the architect to a greater extent than upon any member of the fine art family.  The temptation to sweeten work, to make each detail in itself lovable and expressive is great; but that the whole may be truly eloquent of its ultimate function, restraint is imperative.  To let individual elements shine at the expense of final repose is a betrayal of trust, for buildings are the background or framework for the human life within their walls and a foil for the nature without.  Architecture is the most complete of conventionalizations and, except music, of all the arts the most subjective.”

– Frank Lloyd Wright, 1908
