    With the Industrial Revolution, basically 5,000 years of progress was thrown out the window…People assume that in the 21st century buildings should be made of titanium, because we have a narrow definition of progress.
    Maybe a 21st-century building is made out of dirt used in an intelligent and beautiful way.

    -John Ochsendorf, MIT professor of civil engineering and architecture
