"Architecture is not a question of material or structural reality but of the effects of the particular surfaces it presents to the observer, which informs a sense of identity. Identity is constructed from people's perceptions of the appearance or outer skin of a person and a building. What he or she wears or skin that covers the building defines the appearance."
