Can you help a music school/performance space find a terrific quote about architecture becoming a "home"?

To set the scene: in May of 2003 the Music Institute of Chicago opened its new performance and teaching facility in a renovated 1912 Greek Revival style Christian Scientist Church in downtown Evanston, Illinois (about 12 miles north of Chicago). We received the Preservation Council Of Illinois' prestitious Richard H. Driehaus Award for adaptive reuse of this landmark.

Now...we would like to let our many generous donors know how in the past few months, the "bricks and mortar" have truly become a "home." To lead off the many quotes we are gathering from our students, faculty, audiences, art therapy clients, etc. we would like to begin with a quote about architecture taking on "heart"---can someone help?

Thank you!
