“Friedman and his colleague Eda Schaur sought to demonstrate, in the form of tangible objects, the material results of the techniques and methods covered in the manuals produce by the centre. As those techniques and methods were designed for the disadvantaged in order to enable them to improve their living conditions, it was important that prototypes of those artifacts illustrated in the manuals could be displayed.” — Yona Friedman, Structures Serving the Unpredictable, NAi Publishers, 1999 p.78
