Thomas Jefferson – Using taste in the design of houses

Share this quote:
Thomas JeffersonAs we double our numbers every twenty years, we must double our houses. Besides, we build of such perishable materials, that one half of our houses must be rebuilt in every space of twenty years, so that in that time, houses are to he built for three-fourths of our inhabitants. It is, then, among the most important arts: and it is desirable to introduce taste into an art which shows so much.

Thomas Jefferson   (1743-1826)
