Stanford White

Stanford White, an American architect who built Washington Square Arch and other structures says:
Two men set off to build a dream; ....
For the one the dream was finished when
the drawings were done. He laid down his pen.
The other made the dream complete; with bricks and mortar and concrete
That is the sign of last 1800's in NY when there was excitement of a new city bursting out, and you could not tell Architects and Engineers apart. Now the city feels like a zone of renovations, and Architects and Engineers make appointments to see each other. That is where my thoughts are on a Saturday morning even as the day is trying to make up its mind, to rain or not to rain.
