Every great architect is – necessarily – a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.
We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.
A house can have integrity, just like a person, and just as seldom.

The ideal architect should be a man of letters, a skillful draftsman, a mathematician, familiar with historical studies, a diligent student of philosophy, acquainted with music, not ignorant of medicine, learned in the responses of jurisconsults, familiar with astronomy and astronomical calculations.
Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.
Whatever good things we build end up building us.

I don’t want to be interesting. I want to be good.
The secret of architectural excellence is to translate the proportions of a dachshund into bricks, mortar and marble.
