GK Chesterton on skyscrapers

The taste for mere size is not merely more vulgar; it is also more backward and barbaric. It is all the difference between Rembrandt or Velasquez studying the subtleties of an ordinary face and the yokels in a village staring at a giant in a show. And, in so far as it is a war between barbarism and civilization, I hope I am on the side of civilization not for the first time.
