What do you make from this quote ?

    So I'm researching German Architect Hans Scharoun and this is the only quote I've found :

    Both buildings are based, like all tasks, on the determination to grasp the object purely in its nature - ‘purely’ means the ‘natural’ solution of the task.

    I understand it to be find this direct solution and use that, or find the most obvious solution and use that :confused:

    I'm really mot sure what to make of it.

    Thank You !

    it's not that difficult a quote. It's just saying find the best solution to fit the task.

    both buildings were/are created to fit their surroundings/environment?

    why don't these arty types just speak plain english? Or maybe the german translation is bad? Like Jason said, it's all Seagulls and Trawlers.
