Our guiding principle was that design is neither an intellectual nor a material affair, but simply an integral part of the stuff of life, necessary for everyone in a civilized society.
A modern, harmonic and lively architecture is the visible sign of an authentic democracy.
Specialists are people who always repeat the same mistakes.
Only work which is the product of inner compulsion can have spiritual meaning.
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.
Architecture begins where engineering ends.
If your contribution has been vital there will always be somebody to pick up where you left off, and that will be your claim to immortality.
