Kutipan (Quote) - Architecture (4)

If I have a style, I am not aware of it.
Michael Graves

Michael Graves

At a certain point, I just put the building and the art impulse together. I decided that building was a legitimate way to make sculpture.

The frightening thought that what you draw may become a building makes for reasoned lines.
Saul Steinberg

Buildings should serve people, not the other way around.

John Portman

Form follows function.
Louis Sullivan

Louis Sullivan

My buildings will be my legacy... they will speak for me long after I'm gone.

Even at the United Nations, where legend has it that the building was designed so that there could be no corner offices, the expanse of glass in individual offices is said to be a dead giveaway as to rank. Five windows are excellent, one window not so great.
Enid Nemy

I have designed the most buildings of any living American architect.
Alexander Jackson Davis

I am but an architectural composer.
