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.
We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.
Good buildings come from good people; and all problems are solved by good design.
The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.
All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art; like the art of fireworks.
But I am not going to live for ever. And the more I know it; the more amazed I am by being here at all.
