"Any work of Architecture that does not express serenity is a mistake".
Luis Barragán "Time" (1980) -
An architect is two percent gentlemen and ninety-eight percent renegade car salesman.
In my experience, if you have to keep the lavatory door shut by extending your left leg, it’s modern architecture.
-Nancy Banks-Smith “The Guardian” (1969)
"Modern architecture is a flop. There is no question that our cities are uglier today than they were fifty years ago."
Phillip Johnson (1968)
