"A house must please everyone.  Unlike a work of art which doesn't have to please.  Art is the artist's private matter.  This is not the case for houses.  Art is born without being felt.  Houses, on the other hand fulfill a need.  People seek to maintain their comfort.  They hate whatever wretches them from their certitudes, whichever bothers them.  This is why they love their houses and hate art."

- Adolf Loos
