Function influence but does not


dictate form

Does it follow that the house has nothing in common with art and is
architecture not to be included in the arts? Only a very small part of
architecture belongs to art: the tomb and the monument. Everything else
that fulfills a function is to be excluded from the domain of art

Architecture - form equals socialform

Ornament is a crime and all


ornamentation must be rejected

"Beauty grows from necessity not


from repetition of formulas."

Nothing is as dangerous in architecture as dealing with


separated problems. If we split life into separated problem
we split the possibilities to make good building art.

"Architecture depends on the sensuous


seizure by means of touch and sight."

Form does not necessarily follow


function.

"Architecture seizes upon space,


encompasses space and is space itself."

"Truth is indispensible to Architecture &


architectural lie concepts."

Architecture should speak of its time and


place, but yearn for timelessness

"A bldg. is the combination of


different geometric figures."

Look, architecture has a lot of places to hide behind, a lot


of excuses, The client made me do this. The city made me
do this. Oh, the budget. I don't believe that anymore.

"We called architects of the future not its


victims"
"Starting with holes"

Every great architect is necessarily - a great


poet. He must be a great original interpreter
of his time, his day, his age.

Make no little plans; they have no


magic to stir mens blood.

The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes. If you


foolishly ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without
it. Your life will be impoverished. But if you invest in
beauty, it will remain with you all the day of your life.

An idea is salvation by
imagination.

Make big plans; aim high in hope and hope


and work, remembering that a noble, logical
diagram once recorded will not die.
Drawing architecture is a schizoid act: it
involves reducing the world into a piece of
paper.

The house ia a machine for living


in.
"A house is a house."

Architecture is Organic.

Think simples as my old master used to say meaning reduce the whole of its parts into the
simplest terms, getting back to first principles.

Architecture is the reaching out for


the truth

I think architecture has to be a


gift.

Every time a student walks past and really urgent,


expressive piece of architecture that belongs to his college,
it can help reassure him that he does have that mind,
does have that soul.

Each new situation requires a new


architecture.

Forms follows function

It seems a fantastic paradox, but it is nevertheless


a most important truth, that no architecture can be
truly noble which is not imperfect.

I am neither a capitalist nor a socialist, I


am not a religious or an atheist.

It is impossible, as impossible as to raise the dead, to restore anything


that has ever been great or beautiful in architecture. That which I have
insisted upon as the life of the whole, that spirit which is given only by
the hand and eye of the workman, can never be recalled.

Each one sees whatever he wishes


to see

The city must be subject to growth,


decay and renewal.

Less is more, almost

Architects today tend to depreciate themselves, to


regard themselves as no more than just ordinary
citizens without the power to reform the future.

God is in the details.

the exterior of the building is the


result of the interior.

It is better to be good than to be


original.

Forms accommodates function.

Architecture is the will of an epoch


translated into space

Unity disguised as chaos- complexity and


contradiction are often what make works of
art both exciting and profound

Less is more.

Less is bore.

Architecture is a social art."

Without this spirit, Modernist architecture cannot fully


exist. Since there is often a mismatch between the logic
and the spirit of Modernism, I use architecture to
reconcile the two.

I would like my architecture to inspire people


to use their own resources, to move into the
future.

Architecture must meet 3 requirements:


Strength, Beauty, and Utilities
Architecture is a science arising out of many other
sciences, and adorned with much and varied learning; by
the help of which a judgment is formed of those works
which are the result of other arts.

"Form follows beauty."

. Architecture will always express the technical and social


progress of the country in which it is carried out. If we
wish to give it the human content that it lacks, we must
participate in the political struggle.

Architecture is the art of how to


waste space
All architects want to live beyond
their deaths.
architects spend an entire life with this
unreasonable idea that you can fight against
gravity.
