“Architecture is organic when the spatial arrangement of a room, house, and city is planned for human happiness, material, psychological and spiritual. The organic is based therefore on a social idea and not on a figurative idea. We can only call architecture organic when it aims at being human before it is humanist.” – Bruno Zevi, “Towards an Organic Architecture” 1945
“Organic creation in art and architecture is not a style but a principle. No single style could possibly encompass the organic principle. It is a limitless paradigm.” – Eli Bornstein,“Notes on the Mechanical and the Organic in Art and Nature”, The Structuralist 35/36, 1995-96
