A hundred times have I thought New York is a catastrophe and 50 times: It is a beautiful catastrophe.
Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light.
When I'm working on a problem, I never think about beauty. But when I've finished, if the solution is not beautiful I know its wrong.
Any work of architecture which does not express serenity is a mistake.
John M. Johansen
Very often the opinion of the clients must be disregarded in their own interest.
Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.
Louis Henry Sullivan
Form ever follows function.
A great building must begin with the immeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed, and in the end must be unmeasured.
To provide meaningful architecture is not to parody history but to articulate it.
