Soft Architecture

“There will be…a reaction against the rigid, rectilinear architecture expressed in such structures as the United Nations Secretariat building. Buildings of the future will be soft and pliable. Constructed from products derived from atomic chemistry, they will change form constantly according to changes in atmospheric pressure and temperatures.”

-Salvador Dalí, “Soft Architecture”, 1956
