"Mud, besides being mercifully cheap, is undeniably beautiful: Structure dictates form and the material imposes the scale.
Within the limits imposed by the resistance of mud and by the laws of statics, the architect finds a sudden freedom to shape space within the building, to enclose a volume of chaotic air, and to bring it down to order and meaning to the scale of the human being.
In one’s house there is no need for decoration slapped on afterward. The structural elements provide endless interest for the eye."
Hassan Fathy (1900-1989)
