Louis Sullivan, Carson Pirie Scott Building, Chicago, 1899

“The plant organism derives its impulse from the Seed-Germ, and in its growth develops sub-centers of further growth. The seed-germ may thus be considered also as a container of energy, forming of its own will sub-centers of energy in the course of its functioning development toward the finality of its characteristic form - the expression of its identity.”

– Louis Sullivan, 1922
