Building art is a synthesis of life in materialised form. We should try to bring in under the same hat not a splintered way of thinking, but all in harmony together.
Nothing is as dangerous in architecture as dealing with separated problems. If we split life into separated problems we split the possibilities to make good building art.
God created paper for the purpose of drawing architecture on it. Everything else is, at least for me, an abuse of paper.
We should concentrate our work not only to a separated housing problem but housing involved in our daily work and all the other functions of the city.
Just as it takes time for a speck of fish spawn to develop into a fully grown fish, so, too, we need time for everything that develops and crystallizes in the world of ideas. Architecture demands more of this time than other creative work.
The very essence of architecture consists of a variety and development reminiscent of natural organic life. This is the only true style in architecture.
Architecture is not merely national but clearly has local ties in that it is rooted in the earth.
The ultimate goal of the architect...is to create a paradise. Every house, every product of architecture... should be a fruit of our endeavour to build an earthly paradise for people.
Architecture belongs to culture, not to civilization.
