Architecture should speak

of its time and place, but
yearn for timelessness.

Youve got to bumble

forward into the unknown.

"Form follows function-

that has been

misunderstood. Form and

function should be one,
joined in a spiritual union"

"Every great architect is-

necessarily - a great poet.

He must be a great original

Architecture is the masterly,

correct and magnificent play of
masses brought together n light.
