Adam Carolla
In my early 20s I was so miserable doing construction, I wanted something that paid money. I liked nice stuff. I liked cars and architecture, and things that cost money. I wanted to not swing a hammer, and make money... and not do stuff that was dirty. I attempted to get into comedy. I started to do stand-up, but I wasn't very good at it.
Adolf Loos
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 fulfils a function is to be excluded from the domain of art.
Adolf Loos
Architecture arouses sentiments in man. The architect's task therefore, is to make those sentiments more precise.
Adolf Loos
The work of art shows people new directions and thinks of the future. The house thinks of the present.
Ai Weiwei
I see the Beijing National Stadium as an architectural project. I accepted Herzog and De Meuron's invitation to collaborate on the design, and our proposal won the competition. From beginning to end, I stayed with the project. I am committed to fostering relationships between a city and its architecture.
Ai Weiwei
To work in architecture you are so much involved with society, with politics, with bureaucrats. It's a very complicated process to do large projects. You start to see the society, how it functions, how it works. Then you have a lot of criticism about how it works.
Alain de Botton
It is in dialogue with pain that many beautiful things acquire their value. Acquaintance with grief turns out to be one of the more unusual prerequisites of architectural appreciation. We might, quite aside from all other requirements, need to be a little sad before buildings can properly touch us.
Alain Robert
In fact, it will be very easy to climb the building because of its shape and architecture.
Alex Winter
I take a lot from everywhere. I take from music, architecture, novels, and plays. Anywhere that hits you.
Alexander Jackson Davis
I have designed the most buildings of any living American architect.
Alexander Jackson Davis
I am but an architectural composer.
Alvar Aalto
We should concentrate our work not only to a separated housing problem but housing involved in our daily work and all the other functions of the city.
Alvar Aalto
Building art is a synthesis of life in materialised form. We should try to bring in under the same hat not a splintered way of thinking, but all in harmony together.
Alvar Aalto
Nothing is as dangerous in architecture as dealing with separated problems. If we split life into separated problems we split the possibilities to make good building art.
Anthony Ryan
I saw cities, and roads of marvelous construction. I saw cruelty and greed, but I've seen them here too. I saw a people live a life that was strange in many ways, but also much the same as anywhere else.Then why are they so cruel? There was an earnestness to the girl's face, an honest desire to know. Cruelty is in all of us, he said. But they made it a virtue.
Anthony Holden
Charles was very intent to use his years as Prince of Wales to make his mark while he still had freedom of maneuver that he wouldn't have as King. The first subject he really went for was architecture. It made an impact.
Antonio Gaudi
Color in certain places has the great value of making the outlines and structural planes seem more energetic.
Antonio Gaudi
Those who look for the laws of Nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the creator.
Arne Jacobsen
And when an architect has designed a house with large windows, which is a necessity today in order to pull the daylight into these very deep houses, then curtains come to play a big role in architecture.
Arne Jacobsen
Architecture tends to consume everything else, it has become one's entire life.
Arne Jacobsen
Proportions are what makes the old Greek temples classic in their beauty. They are like huge blocks, from which the air has been literally hewn out between the columns.
Arne Jacobsen
I don't see that any buildings should be excluded from the term architecture, as long as they are done properly.
Arne Jacobsen
If a building becomes architecture, then it is art.
Arne Jacobsen
If architecture had nothing to do with art, it would be astonishingly easy to build houses, but the architect's task - his most difficult task - is always that of selecting.
Arne Jacobsen
In addressing a task, one almost always has several possible options, sometimes only a few, and they may all be practical and functional. But they lack the aesthetic aspect that raises it to architecture.
Art Garfunkel
I was a student at Columbia College, actually, in the Architecture school. Paul would drive in from Queens, showing me these new songs. I can't remember us working it out.
Arthur Erickson
Vitality is radiated from exceptional art and architecture.
Arthur Erickson
Space has always been the spiritual dimension of architecture. It is not the physical statement of the structure so much as what it contains that moves us.
Arthur Erickson
Architecture doesn't come from theory. You don't think your way through a building.
Arthur Erickson
Today's developer is a poor substitute for the committed entrepreneur of the last century for whom the work of architecture represented a chance to celebrate the worth of his enterprise.
Arthur Erickson
We are stymied by regulations, limited choice and the threat of litigation. Neither consultants nor industry itself provide research which takes architecture forward.
Arthur Erickson
Great buildings that move the spirit have always been rare. In every case they are unique, poetic, products of the heart.
Arthur Erickson
Does an architecture to assuage the spirit have a place?
Arthur Erickson
Rationalism is the enemy of art, though necessary as a basis for architecture.
Arthur Erickson
The new architecture of transparency and lightness comes from Japan and Europe.
Arthur Erickson
After 1980, you never heard reference to space again. Surface, the most convincing evidence of the descent into materialism, became the focus of design. Space disappeared.
Arthur Erickson
The details are the very source of expression in architecture. But we are caught in a vice between art and the bottom line.
Arthur Erickson
The way of architecture is the quiet voice that underlies it and has guided it from the beginning.
Arthur Erickson
Inspiration in Science may have to do with ideas, but not in Art. In art it is in the senses that are instinctively responsive to the medium of expression.
Audre Lorde
Poetry is not only dream and vision it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.
Ayn Rand
I don't build in order to have clients. I have clients in order to build.
Ayn Rand
A house can have integrity, just like a person,' said Roark, 'and just as seldom.
Ayn Rand
A building has integrity just like a man. And just as seldom.
Ayn Rand
But I don't understand. Why do you want me to think that this is great architecture? He pointed to the picture of the Parthenon.That, said the Dean, is the Parthenon.- So it is.- I haven't the time to waste on silly questions.- All right, then. - Roark got up, he took a long ruler from the desk, he walked to the picture. - Shall I tell you what's rotten about it?- It's the Parthenon! - said the Dean.- Yes, God damn it, the Parthenon!The ruler struck the glass over the picture.- Look,- said Roark. - The famous flutings on the famous columns
Ayn Rand
Architecture is not a business, not a career, but a crusade and a consecration to a joy that justifies the existence of the earth.
Barry Mann
I quit college. I was studying architecture for about a year.
Ben Nicholson
At this present time, matter is still the best way to think of architecture, but I'm not so sure for very long. The computer is radicalizing the way we think about our world.
Ben Nicholson
If you're into architecture and you're from the West, everything is hors d'oeuvres for working to rebuild the Temple. Ultimately you're led there. You can't escape it.
Ben Nicholson
You can just drift unhappily towards this vision of heaven on earth, and ultimately that is what architecture is a vision of: Heaven on earth, at it's best.
Bernard Levin
What has happened to architecture since the second world war that the only passers-by who can contemplate it without pain are those equipped with a white stick and a dog?
Bob Barr
Chicago is known for good steaks, expensive stores and beautiful architecture. Unfortunately, the Windy City also enjoys a reputation for corrupt politics, violent crime, and some of the strictest gun control laws anywhere in the country.
Bob Dylan
I paint mostly from real life. It has to start with that. Real people, real street scenes, behind the curtain scenes, live models, paintings, photographs, staged setups, architecture, grids, graphic design. Whatever it takes to make it work.
Brad Pitt
I'm drawn to furniture design as complete architecture on a minor scale.
Bruce Jackson
Bridges are perhaps the most invisible form of public architecture.
Caroline Wozniacki
I'd like to do a lot of things - whether in design or architecture or business.
Catherine Deneuve
I would have liked maybe to be in architecture or painting, something connected to the fine arts.
Charles Eames
In architecture the idea degenerated. Design allows a more direct and pleasurable route.
Charlie Rose
I would've been intrigued by being a film director. I would've been intrigued by politics. I thought about architecture.
Charlotte Bunch
What is being called the UN 'gender architecture' is more like a shack. Women need a bigger global house if equality is ever to become a reality.
Christopher Nolan
The only job that was ever of interest to me other than filmmaking is architecture.
Christopher Wren
Architecture aims at Eternity.
Clara Chow
With the balcony doors completely open and folded up, his small room acquired an infinite vista. Somewhere on the horizon, water finally worked up the courage to embrace the sky.
Coco Chanel
Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.
Constantin Brancusi
Architecture is inhabited sculpture.
Curtis Tyrone Jones
Sometimes the things that destroy you, become the architectural blueprints which make your mind royal.
Dagara Tribe Member
You are my other self
Daniel Burnham
Make big plans aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die.
Daniel Libeskind
I studied architecture in New York. So, really I was very moved, like everyone else, to try to contribute something that has that resonance and profundity of it means to all of us.
Daniel Libeskind
Winning a competition in architecture is a ticket to oblivion. It's just an idea. Ninety-nine per cent never get built.
Daniel Libeskind
Cities are the greatest creations of humanity.
Daniel Libeskind
To provide meaningful architecture is not to parody history but to articulate it.
David Allan Coe
It is not the beauty of a building you should look at its the construction of the foundation that will stand the test of time.
David Byrne
Architecture theory is very interesting.
Delia Ephron
In Los Angeles, by the time you're 35, you're older than most of the buildings.
Donna Karan
I love building spaces: architecture, furniture, all of it, probably more than fashion. The development procedure is more tactile. It's about space and form and it's something you can share with other people.
Donna Tartt
What are the dead, anyway, but waves and energy? Light shining from a dead star?That, by the way, is a phrase of Julian's. I remember it from a lecture of his on the Iliad, when Patroklos appears to Achilles in a dream. There is a very moving passage where Achilles overjoyed at the sight of the apparition

Edward Tufte
We shouldn't abbreviate the truth but rather get a new method of presentation.
Edwin Lutyens
There will never be great architects or great architecture without great patrons.
El Lissitzky
Let us summarize these three points more concisely:(a) The rejection of art as a mere emotional, individualistic, and romantic affair.(b) Objective work, undertaken with the silent hope that the end product will nevertheless eventually be regarded as a work of art.(c) Consciously goal-directed work in architecture, which will have a concise artistic effect on the basis of well-preparated objective-scientific criteria.Such an architecture will actively raise the general standard of living. This represents the dialectic of our development process, which purports to arrive at the affirmative by negation
Enid Nemy
Even at the United Nations, where legend has it that the building was designed so that there could be no corner offices, the expanse of glass in individual offices is said to be a dead giveaway as to rank. Five windows are excellent, one window not so great.
Erik Pevernagie
In the architecture of their life some may display Potemkin happiness in view of hiding the dark features of their fair weather relationship, preferring to set up a window dressing of fake satisfaction rather than being rejected as emotional outcasts. (Absence of beauty was like hell)
Ernest Dimnet
Architecture, of all the arts, is the one which acts the most slowly, but the most surely, on the soul.
Ernest Hemingway
Prose is architecture, not interior decoration, and the Baroque is over.
Ernest Hemingway
Switzerland is a small, steep country, much more up and down than sideways, and is all stuck over with large brown hotels built on the cuckoo clock style of architecture.
Erol Ozan
In time, all great masterpieces turn into shameless creatures who laugh at their creators.
Federico Garcia Lorca
The two elements the traveler first captures in the big city are extra human architecture and furious rhythm. Geometry and anguish.
Frank Gehry
Liquid architecture. It's like jazz - you improvise, you work together, you play off each other, you make something, they make something. And I think it's a way of - for me, it's a way of trying to understand the city, and what might happen in the city.
Frank Gehry
Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.
Frank Gehry
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.
Frank Lloyd Wright
Maybe we can show government how to operate better as a result of better architecture. Eventually, I think Chicago will be the most beautiful great city left in the world.
Frank Lloyd Wright
Every great architect is - necessarily - a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.
Frank Lloyd Wright
Noble life demands a noble architecture for noble uses of noble men. Lack of culture means what it has always meant: ignoble civilization and therefore imminent downfall.
Frank Lloyd Wright
The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.
Frank Lloyd Wright
An architect's most useful tools are an eraser at the drafting board, and a wrecking bar at the site.
Frank Lloyd Wright
Organic architecture seeks superior sense of use and a finer sense of comfort, expressed in organic simplicity.
Frank Stella
Architecture can't fully represent the chaos and turmoil that are part of the human personality, but you need to put some of that turmoil into the architecture, or it isn't real.
Friedrich von Schelling
Architecture in general is frozen music.
Fritjof Capra
Patterns cannot be weighed or measured. Patterns must be mapped.
Gates McFadden
I love a lot of things, and I'm pretty much obsessive about most things I do, whether it be gardening, or architecture, or music. I'd be an obsessive hairdresser.
George Hickenlooper
I think that narrative, fiction filmmaking is the culmination of several art forms: theater, art history, architecture. Whereas doc filmmaking is more pure cinema, like cinema verite is film in its purest form.
George Lamming
The architecture of our future is not only unfinished the scaffolding has hardly gone up.
Giambattista Valli
I like things that are kind of eclectic, when one thing doesn't go with another. That's why I love Rome. The town itself is that way. It's where Fascist architecture meets classic Renaissance, where the ancient bangs up against the contemporary. It has a touch of everything. That's my style, and that's what my work is about.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
All architecture is great architecture after sunset perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I was planning to go into architecture. But when I arrived, architecture was filled up. Acting was right next to it, so I signed up for acting instead.
Goldwin Smith
Every one who has a heart, however ignorant of architecture he may be, feels the transcendent beauty and poetry of the mediaeval churches.
Goldwin Smith
Yet for my part, deeply as I am moved by the religious architecture of the Middle Ages, I cannot honestly say that I ever felt the slightest emotion in any modern Gothic church.
Gustav Stickley
First, there is the bare beauty of the logs themselves with their long lines and firm curves. Then there is the open charm felt of the structural features which are not hidden under plaster and ornament, but are clearly revealed, a charm felt in Japanese architecture.
Harry Seidler
After about the first Millennium, Italy was the cradle of Romanesque architecture, which spread throughout Europe, much of it extending the structural daring with minimal visual elaboration.
Harry Seidler
Architecture is not an inspirational business, it's a rational procedure to do sensible and hopefully beautiful things that's all.
Harry Seidler
After World War II great strides were made in modern Japanese architecture, not only in advanced technology, allowing earthquake resistant tall buildings, but expressing and infusing characteristics of traditional Japanese architecture in modern buildings.
Harry Seidler
The Romans were not inventors of the supporting arch, but its extended use in vaults and intersecting barrel shapes and domes is theirs.
Harry von Zell
As a designer, the mission with which we have been charged is simple: providing space at the right cost.
Havelock Ellis
The art of dancing stands at the source of all the arts that express themselves first in the human person. The art of building, or architecture, is the beginning of all the arts that lie outside the person and in the end they unite.
Hayden Christensen
I don't find Hollywood interesting, so I'm thinking of studying architecture instead.
HEDoffice
Simple is complicated.
Helmut Jahn
Every building is a prototype. No two are alike.
Helmut Jahn
The American attitude towards efficiency and execution should always underlie architecture.
Helmut Jahn
The architecture profession has lost a lot of its integrity, especially in the USA. The general architect here has no scruples, no ambitions.
Helmut Jahn
A city building, you experience when you walk a suburban building, you experience when you drive.
Helmut Jahn
I strive for an architecture from which nothing can be taken away.
Helmut Jahn
It's my goal to make a building as immaterial as possible. Architecture is a very material thing. It takes a lot of resources, so why not eliminate what you don't need as long as you're able to achieve the same result?
Henry David Thoreau
They can do without architecture who have no olives nor wines in the cellar.
Herbert Simon
Engineering, medicine, business, architecture and painting are concerned not with the necessary but with the contingent - not with how things are but with how they might be - in short, with design.
Hugo Chavez
Convinced as I am and as I am from my government that the world needs a new moral architecture over all I believe that this should be the first topic to debate in our world of today, ethics, moral.
I.M. Pei
Contemporary architects tend to impose modernity on something. There is a certain concern for history but it's not very deep. I understand that time has changed, we have evolved. But I don't want to forget the beginning. A lasting architecture has to have roots.
I.M. Pei
Great artists need great clients.
I.M. Pei
I believe that architecture is a pragmatic art. To become art it must be built on a foundation of necessity.
Ian Hamilton Finlay
The same sort of thing happened in my dispute with the National Trust book: Follies: A National Trust Guide, which implied that the only pleasure you can get from Folly architecture is by calling the architect mad, and by laughing at the architecture.
James C. Snyder
Forests were the first temples of God and in forests men grasped their first idea of architecture.
James H. Breasted
There was an age, however, when the transition from savagery to civilization, with all its impressive outward manifestations in art and architecture, took place for the first time.
James Maslow
I would like to attend college in the future when I have time. I have always been interested in architecture, so perhaps I would pursue a degree in that or business.
James Rouse
For many years, I have lived uncomfortably with the belief that most planning and architectural design suffers for lack of real and basic purpose. The ultimate purpose, it seems to me, must be the improvement of mankind.
James Stewart
I was going to be an architect. I graduated with a degree in architecture and I had a scholarship to go back to Princeton and get my Masters in architecture. I'd done theatricals in college, but I'd done them because it was fun.
James Wyatt
Revived in this country the long forgotten beauties of Gothic architecture.
Jasna Horvat
Yandex translation from Croatian to English: Nomadom was the time when the ratio of beauty began to think about how about love than between two parts, in which opposites attract only magical powers, and the same ratio is equal to the lords and architecture and nature.
Jay Chiat
The intellectual architecture means focusing on doing great work instead of focusing on agency politics.
Jay Chiat
The team architecture means setting up an organization that helps people produce that great work in teams.
Jay Kappraff
Thus nature provides a system for proportioning the growth of plants that satisfies the three canons of architecture. All modules are isotropic and they are related to the whole structure of the plant through self-similar spirals proportioned by the golden mean.
Jean Nouvel
I like to play with architecture! It's my favorite game.
Jean Nouvel
I think architecture has to be a gift.
Jean Nouvel
Each new situation requires a new architecture.
Jennifer McMahon
Beautiful building, Phoebe said. Sam nodded. Classical Revival, he said. It was yet another display of his seemingly unending knowledge that both made her proud and made her feel very small. Maybe if she had gone to college she would have learned about building styles and understand what Classical Revival meant. They could have intelligent discussions about things like rooflines and columns.
Jeremy Renner
Architecture and building is about how you get around the obstacles that are presented to you. That sometimes determines how successful you'll be: How good are you at going around obstacles?
Jim Rohn
Whatever good things we build end up building us.
Jim Woodring
That Moorish architecture is all over the place, of course. It affects me everywhere I see it, as it does so many people. But Brand Library was a special place to me, and I know I've paid homage to it many times in my drawings.
Jimmy Breslin
Designed by architects with honorable intentions but hands of palsy.
Jo Lefebure
Zowat het ergste dat een historisch gegroeide stad kan overkomen is dat zijn historische rijkdom geconsumeerd wordt als een apart te verteren stuk sneop, een 'historische' lekkernij in een toeristisch getto, een reclamefolder op ware grootte, een gemummificeerde achtergrond aan geen stad.
Jo Nesbo
Until the Eighties, Oslo was a rather boring town, but it's changed a lot, and is now much more cosmopolitan. If I go downtown, I visit the harbour to see the tall ships and the ferries, and to admire the modern architecture such as the Opera House or the new Astrup Fearnley Museum on the water's edge.
Joe Elliott
I've always liked traveling around Europe and seeing the architecture. The buildings in capital cities have been there for hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years. Some look better than the new ones.
Joel Coen
The architecture of a story can be a little bit different if it's a true story.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I call architecture frozen music.
John Baldacci
There is a lot of interest in the arts, music, theatre, filmmaking, engineering, architecture and software design. I think we have now transitioned the modern-day version of the entrepreneur into the creative economy.
John Howe
Information and inspiration are everywhere... history, art, architecture, everything an illustrator needs. Europe is, after all, the land that has generated most of the enduring myths and legends of Western culture.
John Irving
The building of the architecture of a novel - the craft of it - is something I never tire of.
John Osborne
Don't clap too hard - it's a very old building.
John Portman
Buildings should serve people, not the other way around.
John Portman
Architects in the past have tended to concentrate their attention on the building as a static object. I believe dynamics are more important: the dynamics of people, their interaction with spaces and environmental condition.
John Ruskin
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.
John Ruskin
It does not much matter that an individual loses two or three hundred pounds in buying a bad picture, but it is to be regretted that a nation should lose two or three hundred thousand in raising a ridiculous building.
John Ruskin
No architecture is so haughty as that which is simple.
John Ruskin
We require from buildings two kinds of goodness: first, the doing their practical duty well: then that they be graceful and pleasing in doing it.
John Ruskin
It seems a fantastic paradox, but it is nevertheless a most important truth, that no architecture can be truly noble which is not imperfect.
Joni Mitchell
I see music as fluid architecture.
Joseph Kosinski
Once I got out of architecture school I decided not to be an architect, I just started my own little design studio.
Joseph Kosinski
I went to school for engineering, I studied jazz. So I always had this kind of creative side and technical side, and I thought architecture might be the way to combine them, so I went to architecture school in New York.
Juan Goytisolo
When I write now I do not invent situation, characters, or actions, but rather structures and discursive forms, textual groupings which are combined according to secret affinities among themselves, as in architecture or the plastic arts.
Julia Morgan
Architecture is a visual art, and the buildings speak for themselves.
Julia Morgan
My buildings will be my legacy... they will speak for me long after I'm gone.
Karl Lagerfeld
We need houses as we need clothes, architecture stimulates fashion. It's like hunger and thirst

Kenneth Clark
Opera, next to Gothic architecture, is one of the strangest inventions of Western man. It could not have been foreseen by any logical process.
Kenzo Tange
There is a powerful need for symbolism, and that means the architecture must have something that appeals to the human heart. There is a powerful need for symbolism, and that means the architecture must have something that appeals to the human heart.
Kenzo Tange
Technological considerations are of great importance to architecture and cities in the informational society.
Kenzo Tange
I feel however, that we architects have a special duty and mission... (to contribute) to the socio-cultural development of architecture and urban planning.
Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Artists use frauds to make human beings seem more wonderful than they really are. Dancers show us human beings who move much more gracefully than human beings really move. Films and books and plays show us people talking much more entertainingly than people really talk, make paltry human enterprises seem important. Singers and musicians show us human beings making sounds far more lovely than human beings really make. Architects give us temples in which something marvelous is obviously going on. Actually, practically nothing is going on.
Larry Wall
Post-Modernism was a reaction against Modernism. It came quite early to music and literature, and a little later to architecture. And I think it's still coming to computer science.
Laurens van der Post
Modern man has lost the sense of wonderabout the unknown and he treats it asan enemy.
Laurie Perez
I look around with divine precision and gazing free upon the earth, I see
Le Corbusier
Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light.
Le Corbusier
A house is a machine for living in.
Le Corbusier
To create architecture is to put in order. Put what in order? Function and objects.
Levon Helm
We all love musical architecture there's no doubt about that.
Lew Wallace,
The architect had not stopped to bother about columns and porticos, proportions or interiors, or any limitation upon the epic he sought to materialize; he had simply made a servant of Nature - art can go no further.
Lois Farfel Stark
We form a mental map, and then that shape, shapes us

Lois Farfel Stark
SEE what you think.
Lord Byron
A man of eighty has outlived probably three new schools of painting, two of architecture and poetry and a hundred in dress.
Louis Kahn
Architecture is the reaching out for the truth.
Louis Kahn
A great building must begin with the unmeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed and in the end must be unmeasurable.
Louis Kahn
Every time a student walks past a 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.
Louis Kahn
Consider the momentous event in architecture when the wall parted and the column became.
