RALF BOCK

Planning and building is a process that is nowadays influenced by many factors, which sometimes make the result seem quite inhumane, even though a lot of human energy has been put into it, from the planner to the building worker. Let us never lose sight of the goal of our efforts: To improve living together and working for mankind with our work.

There are many big and small things we can use to improve our living together and our personal feeling. Let us think together about how we can put it into practice. It is not a question of money it is a question of spirit. We shape our present and have a great responsibility for the future.
