Quotation Bullet

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.
~ Gilbert K. Chesterton - [Architecture]

Quotation Bullet

A modern, harmonic and lively architecture is the visible sign of an authentic democracy.
~ Walter Gropius - [Architecture]

Quotation Bullet

Ah, to build, to build! That is the noblest art of all the arts. Painting and sculpture are but images, are merely shadows cast by outward things on stone or canvas, having in themselves no separate existence. Architecture, existing in itself, and not in seeming a something it is not, surpasses them as substance shadow.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow - [Architecture]

Quotation Bullet

All architects want to live beyond their deaths.
~ Philip Johnson - [Architecture]

Quotation Bullet

All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks.
~ Gilbert K. Chesterton - [Architecture]

Quotation Bullet

Architect. One who drafts a plan of your house, and plans a draft of your money.
~ Ambrose Bierce - [Architecture]

Quotation Bullet

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.
~ Walter Gropius - [Architecture]

Quotation Bullet

Architecture is inhabited sculpture.
~ Constantin Brancusi - [Architecture]

Quotation Bullet

Architecture is the art of how to waste space.
~ Philip Johnson - [Architecture]

Quotation Bullet

Architecture is to make us know and remember who we are.
~ Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe - [Architecture]
