Maison du Peuple (House of the People)



Maison du Peuple (House of the  People)
Brussels, Belgium. 1895-1899 (Demolished 1965)
Architect: Victor Horta


"If it is correct that logic is the basis of a creator's slightest reasoning, I believe that it must not be allowed to interfere with one's "charm", that delicate, superfluous entity which often adds to harsh necessity?"
"Si bien es cierto que la lógica es la base del razonamiento inicial de un creador, creo que no debe interferir con el "encanto", esa delicada entidad, superflua que a menudo se suma a dura necesidad"


Victor Horta (Quote extracted from R.L. Delevoy, Pionniers du XXe Siecle: Guimard, Horta, van de Velde, Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Paris, 1971)
