Architecture Quotes

I wanted a real profession. And I’d always been interested in architecture and in design and in, really, what makes things work. And understanding what’s kind of behind the walls and why things stand up and some things don’t.

Architecture Quotes

As a viewer, that’s work I respond to – work that I know is singular in some way. If I’m being challenged by something on screen, if I don’t quite know why it’s happening, I want to know I can do the work of pulling it apart and that there’ll be something satisfactory about it. If the architecture is sound, you can be lyrical in execution.

Architecture Quotes

A building is no good if someone’s got to explain to you why it’s good. You can’t say you don’t know enough about architecture – that’s ridiculous. It’s got to work on many levels.

Architecture Quotes

The truth be told, the World Trade Center was neither a very good work of architecture nor a very successful piece of urbanism. Its shortcomings were somewhat mitigated by the westward and southward expansion of the World Financial Center and Battery Park City during the 1980s.
