My apartment reflects my views as an architect. It is minimal, austere. The architecture doesn't impose itself upon you. The apartment is a stage for other things to take place.
Certainly if I were to think in terms of a field that would have required a different mode of education, I think I would have leaned in the direction of being a therapist. And without the education, or a different kind of education, I think my first choice would be a landscape architect. I love to garden.
There are so many constraints on the architect that public buildings almost never feel free or enjoyable.
As an architect, I learned to think and express myself on flat forms, on paper, and to imagine the contour of the lines of a design.
I may live in London, but I'll go back to the country one day. My dad's an architect, so I would like him to design me a house. I'd love to be in the countryside when I'm older.
No architect troubled to design houses that suited people who were to live in them, because that would have meant building a whole range of different houses. It was far cheaper and, above all, timesaving to make them identical.
Well, the whole story is in the book, but the short answer is that I was the first information architect in an organization that was traditionally design-oriented, and I felt I needed a tool to help me gain the trust and support of my colleagues.
Jesse James Garrett
It is not possible to design always the same. How to be different in each different place - that is the most important work and duty of the architect to find out.
The term 'renaissance man' is always bandied about. I don't think that applies to me. You think about Leonardo da Vinci, and he was a painter and a physicist and an architect, and that is a true renaissance man.
A lot of people call me the architect of rock & roll. I don't call myself that, but I believe it's true.
I am the architect of rock n' roll. I have to be a fan of all its forms.
An architect is given a program, budget, place, and schedule. Sometimes the end product rises to art - or at least people call it that.
God, that all-powerful Creator of nature and architect of the world, has impressed man with no character so proper to distinguish him from other animals, as by the faculty of speech.
I don't think the people wanna see me play Clyde Johnson the architect.
When I was a kid, I thought I was going to be an architect, because when I was 12 years old I had a guidance counselor that convinced me that that was the best career choice for me.
Architecture is a service business. An architect is given a program, budget, place, and schedule. Sometimes the end product rises to art - or at least people call it that.
There's only one Sabbath guitarist and he is the architect for everything, Tony Iommi.
So I was shampooing at 14. But I've always thought that had I the opportunity for an education, I would have been an architect. There's no question about it.
From the intrinsic evidence of his creation, the Great Architect of the Universe now begins to appear as a pure mathematician.
There can be little question that the tall building presents one of the most difficult challenges to the architect.
If, early on, you know how things are put together, then you can build. The architect is in charge of making - he is not an artist.
I don't think I would ever quit acting, but there are other things I am interested in. I wanted to be an architect, and I wish I knew more about landscaping.
If architecture had nothing to do with art, it would be astonishingly easy to build houses, but the architect's task - his most difficult task - is always that of selecting.
I wanted to be a landscape architect, but I trained as a teacher; I worked in publishing; I was a waitress.
Architecture is the story of how we see ourselves. It is the architect's job to service everyday life.
