It is the magic of architecture that a line on paper turns into a tower in the sky.

A home is all perpendiculars, parallels and love.

Architecture arose from hairlessness.

Castles are born of fear; cathedrals of love.

The beautiful edifice seduces and swallows its architect.

Function is the finest face of form.

Ruins were invented to keep architects humble.

Light levitates the vault.

The first cathedral was a forest.

Great structures are vacations.

We visit ruins to discover ourselves.

The soul needs a banality to know an eternality.

The pillar, the arch, the crown — the architect’s renown.

Great buildings function, endure and enchant.

Yesterday was designed by inspiration, today by collaboration, tomorrow by virtualization.

Sustainable is unmaintainable.
