Believe me, that was a happy age, before the days of architects, before the days of builders.

Marcus Annaeus Seneca Seneca The Elder, rhetorician

Every man is the architect of his own fortune.

Sallust, historian

To me, a building - if it's beautiful - is the love of one man, he's made it out of his love for space, materials, things like that.

Martha Graham, dancer

Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.

Frank Gehry, architect

We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.

Winston Churchill, politician

A structure becomes architectural, and not sculptural, when its elements no longer have their justification in nature.

Guillaume Apollinaire, novelist

Those who look for the laws of Nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the creator.

Antoni Gaudi, architect

My house is my refuge, an emotional piece of architecture, not a cold piece of convenience.

Luis Barragan, architect

Organic architecture seeks superior sense of use and a finer sense of comfort, expressed in organic simplicity.

Frank Lloyd Wright, architect

An architect's most useful tools are an eraser at the drafting board, and a wrecking bar at the site.

The architecture of a story can be a little bit different if it's a true story.

I don't find Hollywood interesting, so I'm thinking of studying architecture instead.

Hayden Christensen, actor

A modern, harmonic and lively architecture is the visible sign of an authentic democracy.

Walter Gropius, architect

I hate vacations. If you can build buildings, why sit on the beach?

Philip Johnson, architect

The dialogue between client and architect is about as intimate as any conversation you can have, because when you're talking about building a house, you're talking about dreams.

Robert A. M. Stern, architect

The way of architecture is the quiet voice that underlies it and has guided it from the beginning.

Arthur Erickson, architect

Architecture has recorded the great ideas of the human race. Not only every religious symbol, but every human thought has its page in that vast book.

Victor Hugo, author

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.

Ernest Hemingway, novelist

The only legitimate artists in England are the architects.

Benjamin Haydon, artist

The physician can bury his mistakes, but the architect can only advise his client to plant vines - so they should go as far as possible from home to build their first buildings.

All architects want to live beyond their deaths.

Philip Johnson, architect

The architecture of our future is not only unfinished; the scaffolding has hardly gone up.

George Lamming, novelist

In fact, it will be very easy to climb the building because of its shape and architecture.

Alain Robert, athlete

A basic principle of data processing teaches the folly of trying to maintain independent files in synchonism.

Frederick P. Brooks Jr.,

I look upon myself as a musical bricklayer with architectural aspirations.

Robert Mayer, businessman

When they first built the University of California at Irvine they just put the buildings in. They did not put any sidewalks, they just planted grass. The next year, they came back and put the sidewalks where the trails were in the grass. Perl is just that kind of language. It is not designed from first principles. Perl is those sidewalks in the grass.

Larry Wall, author

The difference between me and the newer artists is that I have the history with the architects, the masters that started the music. I know where the music came from.

Ricky Skaggs, musician

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 Rouse, businessman

Architecture is the reaching out for the truth.

Louis Kahn, architect

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.

Frank Stella, artist

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 Portman, architect

No architect troubled to design houses that suited people who were to live in them, because that would have meant building a whole range of different houses. It was far cheaper and, above all, timesaving to make them identical.

Michael Ende, writer

The Romans were not inventors of the supporting arch, but its extended use in vaults and intersecting barrel shapes and domes is theirs.

Harry Seidler, architect

Buildings should serve people, not the other way around.

John Portman, architect

Richard Ernst, scientist

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, architect

Borne out of this, starting around the 17th Century was the Baroque era. It is my view that it is one of the architectural peak periods in western civilisation.

Harry Seidler, architect

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.

Anthony Holden, journalist

The architect, Peter Arens who is the monstrous carbuncle architect, not merely did his design which had won a public competition never get built but his practice suffered financially for some years.

Anthony Holden, journalist

Well, the whole story is in the book, but the short answer is that I was the first information architect in an organization that was traditionally design-oriented, and I felt I needed a tool to help me gain the trust and support of my colleagues.

Jesse James Garrett, businessman

A journalist and an information architect face exactly the same problem - how to give shape to the pile of information in front of you in a way that will make it easy and natural for people to comprehend. I can't imagine any better preparation for the work I do now.

Jesse James Garrett, businessman

People kind of tend to mystify design and architecture by suggesting you need to train.

Marc Newson, designer

So what we have tried to do in our later buildings is to try to be completely consistent, as a painter is consistent or as a sculptor is consistent. Architecture also must be very consistent.

Minoru Yamasaki, architect

Japanese architecture is very much copied in this country and in Europe.

If you examine this, I think that you will find that it's the mechanics of Japanese architecture that have been thought of as the direct influence upon our architecture.

Minoru Yamasaki, architect

We build buildings which are terribly restless. And buildings don't go anywhere. They shouldn't be restless.

Minoru Yamasaki, architect

The team architecture means setting up an organization that helps people produce that great work in teams.

Jay Chiat, businessman

Architecture doesn't come from theory. You don't think your way through a building.

Arthur Erickson, architect

My buildings will be my legacy... they will speak for me long after I'm gone.

Julia Morgan, architect

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.

Herbert Simon, scientist

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, writer

All fine architectural values are human values, else not valuable.

Frank Lloyd Wright, architect

Nothing requires the architect's care more than the due proportions of buildings.

Marcus V. Pollio,

Wherefore the mere practical architect is not able to assign sufficient reasons for the forms he adopts; and the theoretic architect also fails, grasping the shadow instead of the substance.

Marcus V. Pollio,

Architecture is a visual art, and the buildings speak for themselves.

Julia Morgan, architect

Architecture arouses sentiments in man. The architect's task therefore, is to make those sentiments more precise.

Adolf Loos, architect

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, architect

Trying to describe something musical is like dancing to architecture, it's really difficult.

Robert Palmer, musician

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.

The work of art shows people new directions and thinks of the future. The house thinks of the present.

Adolf Loos, architect

But the building's identity resided in the ornament.

Louis Sullivan, architect

All real education is the architecture of the soul.

William Bennett, politician

I feel however, that we architects have a special duty and mission... (to contribute) to the socio-cultural development of architecture and urban planning.

Kenzo Tange, architect

Of the individual poems, some are more lyric and some are more descriptive or narrative. Each poem is fixed in a moment. All those moments written or read together take on the movement and architecture of a narrative.

Marilyn Hacker, poet

Architects today tend to depreciate themselves, to regard themselves as no more than just ordinary citizens without the power to reform the future.

Kenzo Tange, architect

Technological considerations are of great importance to architecture and cities in the informational society.

Kenzo Tange, architect

Each new situation requires a new architecture.

Jean Nouvel, architect

You should just enjoy it, but as soon as you decide that it is going to be your career, no matter whether you want to be a doctor or an architect or anything else, you need to work 5 hours a day.

Guy Forget, athlete

In my experience, if you have to keep the lavatory door shut by extending your left leg, it's modern architecture.

Nancy BanksSmith,

When it comes to getting things done, we need fewer architects and more bricklayers.

Colleen C. Barrett,

Where do architects and designers get their ideas? The answer, of course, is mainly from other architects and designers, so is it mere casuistry to distinguish between tradition and plagiarism?

Stephen Bayley, critic

Architect. One who drafts a plan of your house, and plans a draft of your money.

Ambrose Bierce, journalist

You have to give this much to the Luftwaffe: when it knocked down our buildings it did not replace them with anything more offensive than rubble. We did that.

Prince Of Wales Charles,

All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks.

G. K. Chesterton, writer

The principle of the Gothic architecture is infinity made imaginable.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, poet

In short, the building becomes a theatrical demonstration of its functional ideal. In this romanticism, high-tech architecture is, of course, no different in spirit -- if totally different in form -- from all the romantic architecture of the past.

Dan Cruickshank,

The terrifying and edible beauty of Art Nouveau architecture.

Salvador Dali, painter

The job of buildings is to improve human relations: architecture must ease them, not make them worse.

Ralph Erskine, architect

A bold architectural statement turns a public building into a landmark, but it is in the details where the architect becomes the real storyteller.

Curtis W. Fentress,

People actually ask me why I bring in projects on budget and on time. It seems I am not living up to the fashionable genius role. I really enjoy when a project gets down to the wire, and through sheer force of will and faith in our process, we cross the goal line, when most people thought it impossible.

Curtis W. Fentress,

Our work is really about taking the best of what is in a place and working that into a project. We'd like to take your vision and goals and weave that into all the bricks and mortar and steel and glass put together, along with all the functional things that we need to make the airport work better.

Curtis W. Fentress,

Architecture is to make us know and remember who we are.

Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe,

I don't think of form as a kind of architecture. The architecture is the result of the forming. It is the kinesthetic and visual sense of position and wholeness that puts the thing into the realm of art.

Roy Lichtenstein, artist

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, poet

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.

Havelock Ellis, psychologist

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.

Gates McFadden, actress
