Architecture Quotes | Arizona Architects

Arizona-Architects   There do happen to be certain terminologies that are very difficult to define in simple words such that the person listening clearly understands. The term ‘Architecture’ is one such terminology that even the architects get confused if they are asked to come up with a clear-cut definition. However, it comes from a Latin word with its Latin descent, architectura; means “chief builder”, and according to Wikipedia it represents both the process and the product of planning, designing and constructing buildings. Architecture has both a practical and an emotional side. May it be a simple type of human shelter, or a magnificent monumental church, architecture reflects the human condition. Sometimes quotations from eminent writers, poets or scholars can prove to be handy when it comes to understanding something complicated. Listed below are some quotes from different personalities about architecture that can clarify the concept behind it.

Frank Lloyd Wright says:
  • “The mother art is architecture. Without architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization”.
  • “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 clients to plant vines.”
  According to Winston Churchill, “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us”.   John Ruskin says, “No architecture is as haughty as that which is simple”.     Frank Gehry states, “Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness”.   According to Philip Johnson, “Architecture is the art of how to waste space”.   T.E. Lawrence says, “All the revision in the world will not save a bad first draft: for the architecture of the thing comes, or fails to come, in the first conception, and revision only affects the detail and ornament, alas!”   Henry David Thoreau said, “They can do without architecture who have no olives nor wines in the cellar”.     Johan Wolfgang von Goethe states, “I call architecture frozen music”.   Gilbert K. Chesterton says, “All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks”.   Walter Gropius claims, “Architecture begins where engineering ends”.   Louis Barragan states, “I don’t divide architecture, landscape and gardening; to me they are one”.   Richard Rogers believes, “My passion and great enjoyment for architecture, and the reason the older I get the more I enjoy it, is because I believe we – architects – can affect the quality of life of the people”.     According to R. Buckminster Fuller, “We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims”.     Augustus W.N. Pugin says, “In pure architecture the smallest detail should have a meaning or serve a purpose”.     Karl Lagerfeld believes, ““We need houses as we need clothes, architecture stimulates fashion. It’s like hunger and thirst — you need them both.”   Yannick Heywang states, “Being an architect isn’t only about construction, it’s about creating wide spaces with small spaces.”   Rebecca Solnit writes in Wanderlust: A history of Walking, “Italian cities have long been held up as ideals, not least by New Yorkers and Londoners enthralled by the ways their architecture gives beauty and meaning to everyday acts.” Yevgeny Zamyatin is of the view, “Literature is painting, architecture, and music.”
