Kutipan (Quote) - Architecture (1)

We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.
Winston Churchill 

Every great architect is - necessarily - a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.
Frank Lloyd Wright 

A building has integrity just like a man. And just as seldom.
Ayn Rand 

I don't build in order to have clients. I have clients in order to build.
Ayn Rand 

A great building must begin with the unmeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed and in the end must be unmeasurable.
Louis Kahn 

Building art is a synthesis of life in materialised form. We should try to bring in under the same hat not a splintered way of thinking, but all in harmony together.
Alvar Aalto 

Architecture is the art of how to waste space.
Philip Johnson 

We require from buildings two kinds of goodness: first, the doing their practical duty well: then that they be graceful and pleasing in doing it.
John Ruskin 

Light, God's eldest daughter, is a principal beauty in a building.
Thomas Fuller 

Less is more.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe 

A house is a machine for living in.
Le Corbusier 

Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.
Frank Gehry 

My passion and great enjoyment for architecture, and the reason the older I get the more I enjoy it, is because I believe we - architects - can effect the quality of life of the people.
Richard Rogers 

An architect's most useful tools are an eraser at the drafting board, and a wrecking bar at the site.
Frank Lloyd Wright 

Great buildings that move the spirit have always been rare. In every case they are unique, poetic, products of the heart.
Arthur Erickson 

Whatever good things we build end up building us.
Jim Rohn 

Space has always been the spiritual dimension of architecture. It is not the physical statement of the structure so much as what it contains that moves us.
Arthur Erickson 

I try to give people a different way of looking at their surroundings. That's art to me.
Maya Lin 

Warmth isn't what minimalists are thought to have.
Maya Lin 

The higher the building the lower the morals.
Noel Coward
