Architecture Quotes

The 10 best Architecture Quotes :

1)”I have a lot of really close, important friends of mine who live in Los Angeles and a lot of good things in my life have happened to me in Los Angeles or have come from Los Angeles. That being said, it’s too hot for me. The architecture is ugly. You can’t walk anywhere. The food sucks. Everyone’s carrying guns. It’s like every time I go down there, the division between rich and poor becomes increasingly more and more marked until…Los Angeles seems to be up there with Bogota in terms of cities where the super rich are as rich as anybody on Earth but they live in gated communities and have black SUVs driving them with bodyguards and then the rest of the people live in fucking shanty towns. I’ve never seen it as bad as L.A. There’s just no middle class. It’s horrible.”

2)”Living in cities is an art, and we need the vocabulary of art, of style, to describe the peculiar relationship between man and material that exists in the continual creative play of urban living.

3)”Form follows function.”
