louis kahn was right...

...the brick really does like an arch
*the southwest corner of division and damen streets, chicago [click to enlarge and fully experience the splendor that is chicago's victorian brick-work]

And if you think of Brick, for instance,
and you say to Brick,
"What do you want Brick?"
And Brick says to you
"I like an Arch."
And if you say to Brick
"Look, arches are expensive,
and I can use a concrete lentil over you.
What do you think of that?"
Brick says:
"... I like an Arch"”
