Sculpture on Buildings

I'm reading "Sculpture on Buildings" by Urs Boeck.

It's an old book, but but I'm finding valuable information in how Boeck sees architectural sculpture. He writes that the three elements of all building sculpture are the actual creative work of the sculptor, the formal relations between architecture and sculpture and finally the gift of meaning to the whole.

I love that phrase the gift of meaning. Without it,it's all gingerbread.

"...the gift of meaning. Without it, it's all gingerbread."-and THAT is the definition of art. Lovely quote.
