The Life of the Buildings

"My buildings are like children. And when the Art and Architecture Building at Yale was burned, I felt that somebody had died. My buildings are very real presences for me, and they change—are changed—and have a life of their own."
Zinsser, John. "Staying Creative; Artistic Passion Is a Lifelong Pursuit - and These Mature Masters Prove the Point. (Otto Luening, Elizabeth Catlett, Paul Rudolph)." 50 Plus 25 (December 1985): 49-55.
