Engrave this Quote A structure becomes architectural, and not sculptural, when its elements no longer have their justification in nature.

Engrave this Quote Where do architects and designers get their ideas? The answer, of course, is mainly from other architects and designers, so is it mere casuistry to distinguish between tradition and plagiarism?

Engrave this Quote You have to give this much to the Luftwaffe: when it knocked down our buildings it did not replace them with anything more offensive than rubble. We did that.

Engrave this Quote All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks.

-G. K. Chesterton
Engrave this Quote A building is akin to dogma; it is insolent, like dogma. Whether or no it is permanent, it claims permanence, like a dogma. People ask why we have no typical architecture of the modern world, like impressionism in painting. Surely it is obviously because we have not enough dogmas; we cannot bear to see anything in the sky that is solid and enduring, anything in the sky that does not change like the clouds of the sky.

Engrave this Quote In short, the building becomes a theatrical demonstration of its functional ideal. In this romanticism, high-tech architecture is, of course, no different in spirit -- if totally different in form -- from all the romantic architecture of the past.

Engrave this Quote The job of buildings is to improve human relations: architecture must ease them, not make them worse.

Engrave this Quote A bold architectural statement turns a public building into a landmark, but it is in the details where the architect becomes the real storyteller.

Engrave this Quote People actually ask me why I bring in projects on budget and on time. It seems I am not living up to the fashionable genius role. I really enjoy when a project gets down to the wire, and through sheer force of will and faith in our process, we cross the goal line, when most people thought it impossible.

Engrave this Quote Our work is really about taking the best of what is in a place and working that into a project. We'd like to take your vision and goals and weave that into all the bricks and mortar and steel and glass put together, along with all the functional things that we need to make the airport work better.

-Walter Gropius
Engrave this Quote Architects, painters, and sculptors must recognize anew and learn to grasp the composite character of a building both as an entity and in its separate parts. Only then will their work be imbued with the architectonic spirit which it has lost as salon art. Together let us desire, conceive, and create the new structure of the future, which will embrace architecture and sculpture and painting in one unity and which will one day rise toward heaven from the hands of a million workers like the crystal symbol of a new faith.
