"What the architectural profession lacks is an understanding of its own social importance.
Isn’t it time to pause and to redefine our position in society.
Of all the crafts ours is the most important in the service we render to our fellow man.
We are those who provide mankind’s shelter.
We are not hired lackey of the rich.
We are crusaders in the cause of the underprivileged and the unsheltered.
Not by what we are shall we be judged, but by those we serve.
Let us stand united in this spirit.
Let us be faithful to this new higher perspective.
Let us organize a nobler dream."
