#1. I'm working on a school of architecture in China. It's rare that an architect gets to design a school of architecture, and here I get to do it. I'm so pleased that they asked me. - Author: Michael Graves
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Michael Graves
#2. His office was a spider's lair of silver thread and tempting promises, a page out of Power Architecture Magazine. The dean copied the design from President Lyndon Johnson's old senate office. The room narrowed toward his desk, an architectural device that channeled all eyes toward the dean, and his chair was slightly elevated, forcing visitors to look up. The two visitors' chairs were both lowered and oversized, making each guest feel like a child, swimming in too much chair. His architect had assured him it was a subliminal masterpiece. - Author: Michael Ben Zehabe
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Michael Ben Zehabe
#3. If he is going into management, he writes. If he is an engineer or architect why he paints or sculpts. He will straddle the line, aware up to the point of knowing he is getting the worst of both worlds, but never stopping to wonder why there should ever be a line, or even if there is a line at all. - Author: Thomas Pynchon
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Thomas Pynchon

#4. The role of the architect as artist is an ancient one, but it was de-emphasized with the rise of modernism, which rejected the drawing-based Beaux-Arts tradition in favor of a more technocratic approach. - Author: Martin Filler
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Martin Filler

Seyhoun Architect quotes by Constant Lambert
#6. Wherefore the mere practical architect is not able to assign sufficient reasons for the forms he adopts; and the theoretic architect also fails, grasping the shadow instead of the substance. - Author: Vitruvius
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Vitruvius
#7. Free speech is a unitary issue in which there are no possible divisions. The moral standing of the speaker has no relevance, other than in our correlated free right to judge him in turn for his actions, and it should not matter whether the person speaking is the finest man who has ever lived or the worst, nor whether or not a majority concurs with his sentiment. It must not matter whether a writer is brilliant or moronic, or a cartoonist witty or bigoted, because it is not up to power, authority, plurality or orthodoxy to make that distinction. Parliament can not be the architect of its own opposition, nor the offended the authors of their own offense. Put bluntly, the law must not distinguish between the writings of Hitler and those of Shakespeare. - Author: Charles C.W. Cooke
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Charles C.W. Cooke
#8. The computer-simulated dreamworld of the Matrix trilogy is a technological version of Descartes's evil demon. In essence it represents the idea of a mind (the Architect) more powerful than our own that is intent on deceiving us whenever, and however, it sees fit. - Author: William Irwin
Seyhoun Architect quotes by William Irwin
#9. Tell me what chair you've designed and I'll tell you what sort of architect you are. - Author: Mario Bellini
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Mario Bellini
#10. Whenever I draw a circle, I immediately want to step out of it. - Author: R. Buckminster Fuller
Seyhoun Architect quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#11. I think perhaps people have too limited a view of where they can put books. They believe they have to be in a room specified as 'the library.' I think books can be anywhere in a house. Piles of books in corners do not offend me. Putting books in the dining room is a wonderful idea. My idea of heaven would be to dine, as well as to sleep, surrounded by books.
~Robert A.M. Stern, Architect - Author: Estelle Ellis
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Estelle Ellis
#12. He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery. - Author: Harold Wilson
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Harold Wilson
#13. Someday me and her, we'll come back here. Maybe she'll be an artist. Maybe she won't. Maybe I'll be an architect. Maybe I won't. What I know for sure is that Echo will be by my side, and that our love is forever. - Author: Katie McGarry
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Katie McGarry
#14. Artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact. - Author: William S. Burroughs
Seyhoun Architect quotes by William S. Burroughs
#15. Our task is to implement Jesus' unique achievement. We are like the musicians called to play and sing the unique and once-only-written musical score. We don't have to write it again, but we have to play it. Or, in the image Paul uses in I Corinthians 3, we are now in the position of young architects discovering a wonderful foundation already laid by a master architect and having to work out what sort of building was intended. - Author: N. T. Wright
Seyhoun Architect quotes by N. T. Wright
#16. There is an effective strategy open to architects. Whereas doctors deal with the interior organisms of man, architects deal with the exterior organisms of man. Architects might join with one another to carry on their work in laboratories as do doctors in anticipatory medicine. - Author: R. Buckminster Fuller
Seyhoun Architect quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#17. A wise architect observed that you could break the laws of architec75tural art provided you had mastered them first. That would apply to religion as well as to art. Ignorance of the past does not guarantee freedom from its imperfections. - Author: Reinhold Niebuhr
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Reinhold Niebuhr
#18. The job of the architect becomes more difficult in this secular age. Where once he had a god to extol, he now has humans like himself; where once he had "he," he now has "she" and "they. - Author: Nikki Giovanni
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Nikki Giovanni
#19. I am sorry for your disappointment,' he continued, glancing into her face. Their eyes having met, became, as it were, mutually locked together, and the single instant only which good breeding allows as the length of such a look, became trebled: a clear penetrating ray of intelligence had shot from each into each, giving birth to one of those unaccountable sensations which carry home to the heart before the hand has been touched or the merest compliment passed, by something stronger than mathematical proof, the conviction, 'A tie has begun to unite us.' Both faces also unconsciously stated that their owners had been much in each other's thoughts of late. Owen had talked to the young architect of his sister as freely as to Cytherea of the young architect. - Author: Thomas Hardy
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Thomas Hardy
#20. People called me a hoodlum and a thug. But they didn't tell you I was a carpenter, an architect, a stand-up comic - even a bartender. And a barbecue cook. But they didn't tell you that. - Author: Bobby Seale
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Bobby Seale
#21. Of course, I didn't become an architect, but later on in Iran, I had a lot of contact and discussions with architects because Iran was developing, and I felt we shouldn't destroy the past and copy completely the West, which is the problem in developing countries. - Author: Farah Diba
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Farah Diba
#22. Let every man feel that he is the architect and builder of his own life, and that he proposes to make a success of it by working. - Author: Heber J. Grant
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Heber J. Grant
#23. But amid much elegance and precision, the details of life and the Universe also exhibit haphazard, jury-rigged arrangements and much poor planning. What shall we make of this: an edifice abandoned early in construction by the architect? - Author: Carl Sagan
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Carl Sagan
#24. Birds in flight, claims the architect Vincenzo Volentieri, are not between places - they carry their places with them. We never wonder where they live: they are at home in the sky, in flight. Flight is their way of being in the world. - Author: Geoff Dyer
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Geoff Dyer
#25. The Roman censor Appius Claudius the Blind said, Every man is the architect of his own fortune. - Author: Jim Rogers
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Jim Rogers
#26. 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. - Author: Harry Treadaway
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Harry Treadaway
#27. Ubiquity is the master pacifier, a potent anaesthetic and persuasive desensitiser, and through the universality of His works - where both predator and prey, wicked and good suffer enormously without favouritism or bias in a universe whose laws know no sympathy - the wicked architect has ensured the curious and the distrusting will seek out any alternative explanation for that which they do not wish to recognise , or better still, not see the depravity at all. - Author: John Zande
Seyhoun Architect quotes by John Zande
#28. In Britain, chinoiserie was eclipsed by the medievalism of Sir Walter Scott and the Gothic Revival, while in Europe japonisme would be chinoiserie's successor. Japonisme never compelled the general middle-class British taste as did the indigenous medieval style. Nonetheless, through extensive importations to Britain of Japanese art and artifacts, notably by the shop Liberty's of London, as well as through the artists James McNeill Whistler and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the architect E.W. Godwin, and the writer Oscar Wilde, the Japanese style of decoration was known in Britain well before 1894. - Author: Linda Gertner Zatlin
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Linda Gertner Zatlin
#29. An architect doesn't go off with a shovel and dig his foundation and lay every brick. He's still an artist. - Author: Sol LeWitt
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Sol LeWitt
#30. Destroy the seed and the plant will never grow. Man alone, of all creatures of earth, can change his thought pattern and become the architect of his destiny. - Author: Spencer W. Kimball
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
#31. Wright is an interesting study of a superstar architect having both right and wrong influence. "All Architecture, worthy the name," he decreed in 1910, "will, henceforward, more and more be organic."12 So inspired by Viollet-le-Duc and Louis Sullivan, he inspired countless others (including young me) toward an organic approach to architecture. At the same time, the very pomposity of his decrees helped inflame a fatal egotism in generations of architects, and his most famous buildings belie his organic ideal. They were so totally designed - down to the screwheads all being aligned horizontally to match his prairie line - that they cannot be changed. To live in one of his houses is to be the curator of a Frank Lloyd Wright museum; - Author: Stewart Brand
Seyhoun Architect quotes by Stewart Brand
#32. 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. - Author: Peter Zumthor
