HIGHLIGHTS

REMEMBERING ...

Eileen Gray

(architect, furniture designer)

“A house is not a machine to live in. It is the shell of man, his extension, his release, his spiritual emanation.

 

Not only its visual harmony but its organization as a whole, the whole work combined together, make it human in the most profound sense.”

WOMEN SAY...

Shirley Chisholm

(politician, educator, and author)

“If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair.”

“The next time a woman of whatever color, or a dark-skinned person of whatever sex aspires to be president, the way should be a little smoother because I helped pave it”
