Of all the expressions of art, architecture is the one that is most subject to material conditions.
Permanent are the conditions that nature imposes, passing ones that man imposes.
The climate, its bad weather, its materials, its properties, its stability, its laws, its optics, its distortions, the eternal and universal sense of lines and forms impose conditions that are permanent.
The function, the uses, the regulations, the fashion impose conditions that are transient.

Auguste Perret, 1952
