“Gropius’s greatest contribution was to introduce you to the International Style of the 1920s and 1930s and then to release you. Gropius may be wrong in believing that architecture is a cooperative art. Architects were not meant to design together; it’s either all his work, or mine.”
Rudolph quoted in: Jones, Cranston. Architecture Today and Tomorrow. New York: McGraw-Hill, 1961, p. 175.
