"Make big plans; aim high


in hope and work,

remembering that a noble,


logical diagram once recorded

will not die"

"Make no little plans; they have


no magic to stir men's blood"

: Philippines

Function influence but does

not dictate form

Beauty grows from necessity

not from repetition of


formulas.

Architectural-form equals

social-form

Architecture should speak of

its time and place, but yearn


for timelessness.

Youve got to bumble forward


into the unknown.

"Form follows function- that


has been misunderstood. Form

and function should be one,


joined in a spiritual union"

"Every great architect is-


necessarily - a great poet. He
must be a great original

interpreter of his time, his day,


his age"

"A Doctor can bury his

mistakes, but an Architect can

only advise his client to plant


vines."

Every little girl needed a

balcony to be serenaded

: An idea is salvation by

imagination.

The things always happens


that you really believe in; and
the belief in a thing makes it
happen

In a house, you should get a


surprise every time you turn a
corner and look up

"The house is a machine for


living in"

Cube within a cube

"You employ stone, wood &

concrete, and with these

materials you build houses and


palaces; That is construction.
"Ingenuity is at work".

But suddenly you touch my


heart, you do be good, I am

happy and I say: This is


: beautiful; That is Architecture.

"Arts enters in."

Architects everywhere have


recognized the needs of...a tool
which may be put in the hands
of creator of forms, with the
simple aim...of making the bad
difficult and the good easy

Architecture is a brilliant, orthodox


and original jigsaw puzzles of masses
combined in light. Our eyes are
created to see forms in light; lights
and shadow reveal the forms. Cubes
cones, balls, cylinder and pyramid are
primary shapes that lights so
excellently reveal; the picture they
give to us is clear and perspicuous
without indecision. That is why they
are beautiful forms.

Architecture is the masterly, correct


and magnificent play of masses
brought together n light. Our eyes are
made to see forms in light; light and
shade reveal this forms.

"Less is a bore"

we borrow from nature the space


upon which we built
I would like my architecture to
inspire people to use their own
resources, to move into the future

You cannot simply put something into


place. You have to absorb what you see
around you, what is use in the land and
then use that knowledge along with

contemporary thinking to interpret what


you see.

I do not believe architecture should


speak too much. It should remain

silent and let nature in the guise of


sunlight and wind
:
I like the ruins because what remains
is not a total design, but the clarity of

thought, the baked structure, the


spirit of the thing.

my hand is the extension of the


thinking process-the creative process

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 believe that the way people live can


be directed a little by architecture

If you give people nothingness, they


can ponder what can be achieved
from that nothingness.

The speed of change makes you


wonder what will become of
architecture.

You cant really say what is beautiful


about a place, but the image of the
place will remain vividly with you

There is a role and function for


beauty in our time.

There are 360 degrees, why


stick to one

"never forgetting the real

needs of users"
