I believe that the way people live can be directed a little by architecture. If you give people nothingness, they can ponder what can be achieved from that nothingness.
Beauty will result from the form and the correspondence of the whole, with respect to the several parts, of the parts with regard to each other, and of these again to the whole; that the structure may appear an entire and complete body, wherein each member agrees with the other, and all necessary to compose what you intend to form.
The architecture we remember is that which never consoles or comforts us. Architecture is definitely a political act. The problem with digital architecture is that an algorithm can produce endless variations, so an architect has many choices.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together. There it begins. Architecture is the will of an epoch translated into space.
G. I. Gurdjieff
Awakening begins when a man realizes that he is going nowhere and does not know where to go.
