  • Citind aceste randuri mi-a venit in minte dezbaterea avuta la catedra in legatura cu pastrarea „intacta”, cum sustineau unii dintre colegi, a unor constructii existente(*), avand o anume valoare istorica, sau modificarea acestora pentru aducerea la un standard de utilizare in acord cu timpurile noastre.

    „At every instant, there is more than the eye can see, more than the ear can hear, a setting or a view waiting to be explored. Nothing is experienced by itself, but always in relation to its surroundings, the sequence of events leading up to it, the memory of past experiences.”
