The World With A Flat Roof

“In the limited vocabulary of the architect, there are only a few terms available to express an attitude toward the transcendent, and the roof is one of the more important. The flat roof was an article of faith with the modern architect, no matter what the practical consequences . . . Whether it leaked or not was irrelevant. The flat roof was the main expression of the modern’s anti-transcendental attitude.” [E. Michael Jones, Living Machines (San Francisco: Ignatius Press, 1995), p. 59].
