One of the great beauties of architecture is that each time, it is like life starting all over again.
- Renzo Piano
“Architecture cannot be totally explained but must be experienced”, so when we build something, we must appreciate that things that were present before, as they are the essence of the place. That is why I also believe that buildings must be in harmony with the surrounding, the environment, and the climate.
- Geoffrey Bawa
Never talk to a client about architecture. Talk to him about his children. That is simply good politics. He will not understand what you have to say about architecture most of the time. An architect of ability should be able to tell a client what he wants. Most of the time a client never knows what he wants.
– Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
