"Aldous Huxley on Piranesi Prison The raw material of Piranesi’s designs 
consists of architectural forms; but, because the Prisons are images of 
confusion, because their essence is pointlessness, the combination 
ofarchitectural forms never adds up to an architectural drawing, but 
remains a free design, untrammelled by any considerations of utility or 
even possibility, and limited only by the necessity of evoking the 
general idea of a building."
