Sigfried Giedion concluded his book Mechanization Takes Command with a quote on “Man in Equipose”: “Man’s organism requires a specific temperature, a specific quality of climate, air, light and humidity. … And yet, there is no static equilibrium between man and his environment, between inner and outer reality.” See Giedion, Mechanization Takes Command: A Contribution to Anonymous History (New York: Oxford University Press, 1948), 720–23.

This is the verbatim excerpt from Hottel’s correspondence with Merritt Kastens: “While the architects will not probably be interested in the small details of how to calculate the performance of a roof collector for house heating, they must of necessity be interested in the results of such a calculation if they are to make an effective job of blending architecture and engineering. … An able architect interested in applications of solar heating to house design has nevertheless very little to say which is profitable until after he has established some kind of feeling for engineering problems.” See Hoyt Hottel to Merritt Kastens, December 9, 1954, in Hottel Papers, box 1, folder 7.
