Andrew Mylius' article on Michel Virlogeux was excellent (NCE last week) and I very much liked Virlogeux quotation: 'The greatest art comes from making things very simple, but very elegant and perfectly adapted.' This remind me of the words of Ove Arup, many years ago: 'An engineer who does not care what his design looks like, and has no regard for elegance, neatness, order and simplicity for their own sake, is not a good engineer.'
