The Lines of the Craftsmen - Arne Jacobsen's Aarhus Town Hall

"I have seen the lines of the craftsmen, the finest of which are like a spider's web, but mathematical lines are different. 
They are not the images of such things as the eye of my body has showed me. 
The man who knows them does so without any cogitation of physical objects whatever, but intuits them within himself."
Augustine of Hippo, Confessions (book 10, chapter 12,) circa 397AD
