Tumblr of the Week: Ryan Panos

For example, someone asks: "What do you love most in architecture?" Panos replies: "I suppose I love the variety in it, that it simultaneously represents culture, society, the contemporary world we are constructing. The way light hits a facade, a detail is expressed, how one commission can turn the economics of a city." Well said.
