“The project demands that the order is understood. When we have that to meet them with the bricks or we project with them, we must ask to the brick what wants or what it can do, And if we ask to the brick what wants, it will answer: ” Well, it would like an arch “. And then we will say: ” But the arches are difficult to do. They are costlier. I believe that the cement would be OK over your opening “. But the brick answers: ” Already I know, already I know that you have reason, but if you ask me what I prefer, I want an arch “. And one says: ” But good, why are you so stubborn? “. And the arch says: ” can I do a small observation? Do not you realize that you are speaking about a being, and that a being of brick is an arch? “.
