Roark stands before the foundation of the Temple, imagining how it will be when it is finished:

a small building of gray limestone ... it did not cling to the soil and it did not crouch under the sky ... It was scaled to human height in such a manner that it did not dwarf man, but stood as a setting that made his figure the only absolute, the gauge of perfection by which all dimensions were to be judged.
