Notes

"For Pierneef art and architecture were indivisible. The reason for this may lie in his awareness of the function of space. Both disciplines, because they are concerned with and depend on the structuring of space and proportion - architecture in factual, art in representational terms - are, therefore, also involved with aesthetic responses."

Wynand and Eleanore Smit (1990) Pierneef and Architecture, in JH Pierneef: His Life and His Works. PG Nel (ed.) Perskor: Cape Town and Johannesburg. Pages 200-201.
