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 !

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.
