Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light.
The good building is not one that hurts the landscape, but one which makes the landscape more beautiful than it was before the building was built.
Frank Lloyd Wright
Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.
I don't think that architecture is only about shelter, is only about a very simple enclosure. It should be able to excite you, to calm you, to make you think.
A building has at least two lives - the one imagined by its maker and the life it lives afterward - and they are never the same.
As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown.
I don't believe architecture has to speak too much. It should remain silent and let nature in the guise of sunlight and wind
When I am asked what I believe in, I say that I believe in architecture. Architecture is the mother of the arts. I like to believe that architecture connects the present with the past and the tangible with the intangible.
