Chesterton on Architecture

G.K. Chesterton on architecture:

Architecture is the most practical and dangerous of the arts. All the other arts we have to live with…but architecture is not a thing that we only have to live with–it is a thing we have to live in. We live with it as Jonah lived with a whale. Jonah could not see the monster and there is a great deal to be said for living in the most hideous house you can see in the landscape. That is the one place you will be unable to see it.
