'one should not be
suprised to find,
in fact one would
expect to find,
an archaic quality
in architecture today...'


l o u i s   k a h n










































































































































'architecture
also exists without
necessary assistance
from an architect,
and architects
sometimes create
buildings,
which are not
architecture'

n o r v a l   w h i t e












































































































'architecture...
oh yeah?
you're in it.'

a n o n y m o u s






































































































'i like complexity and
contradiction in
architecture...
based on the
richness and
ambiguity of
modern
experience,
including that
experience which is
inherent in art'


r o b e r t   v e n t u r i




























































































'the engineer should then free himself from the forms dictated by the traditions of older building materials, so that in complete freedom and by conceiving the problem as a whole, it would use the material to its ultimate... perhaps then we would arrive at a new style, as in automotive and aircraft construction, as beautiful, and in the same way, determined by the nature of the material'

'a journey
begins with
a single step...'



































































































































































































































































'architecture is the masterly,
correct, and magnificent
play of masses brought
together in light'

l e   c o r b u s i e r





































































































































































'architecture
is seeing what
everyone else
has seen...
and thinking
what no one
else has thought.'

a n o n y m o u s
















































































































































'architecture
must without a doubt
be directed by some sure
rules of art and
proportion'

a l b e r t i

































































'each new style emerged from the one preceding it, so that new construction, new materials, new human tasks and views called forth a change or reconstitution of existing forms... great social changes have always given birth to new styles'
