End game

In a new book on church architecture, Richard Kieckhefer's Theology in Stone, we hear of an all-too-likely meeting between Sigfried Giedion and Frank Lloyd Wright. The latter extends his hand to Giedion, asking:

'And who are you?' Giedion replies: 'My name is Sigfried Giedion. I am a historian.' To which Wright rejoins: 'Oh you write history, you don't make it.' No answer to that.
