Desrosiers Architects quotes by David Ulevitch
#1. One of my bosses happened to be one of the early architects of some of the ways Internet providers work. He taught me how the cables connect, how the telecom providers work ... I learned how to make my own Ethernet cables, all the way up to running a small business. #Quote by David Ulevitch
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Albert Bandura
#2. Many people who gain recognition and fame shape their lives by overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles, only to be catapulted into new social realities over which they have less control and manage badly. Indeed, the annals of the famous and infamous are strewn with individuals who were both architects and victims of their life courses. #Quote by Albert Bandura
Desrosiers Architects quotes by David Chipperfield
#3. Often, architects work too hard trying to make their buildings look different. It's like we're actors let loose on a stage, all speaking our parts at the same time in our own private languages without an audience. #Quote by David Chipperfield
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Kindle Alexander
#4. Another big step was building a house here in Stillwater. Avery's ancestry had claimed some prime property looking down along the St. Croix River. He chose to custom build their home, working endlessly with architects and builders, trying to make a perfect home for his Kane to live in. Kane insisted Avery spent too much money, and every time he gave input, it was designed to save them money. Avery nixed most of those ideas, stating very clearly this was their dream home, the perfect place for his prince to live his life in style. #Quote by Kindle Alexander
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Colin Higgins
#5. I heard a story once in the Orient about two architects who went to see the Buddha. They had run out of money on their projects and hoped the Buddha could do something about it. 'Well, I'll do what I can,' said the Buddha, and he went off to see their work. The first architect was building a bridge, and the Buddha was very impressed. 'That's a very good bridge,' he said, and he began to pray. Suddenly a great white bull appeared, carrying on its back enough gold to finish construction. 'Take it,' said the Buddha, 'and build even more bridges.' And so the first architect went away very happy. The second architect was building a wall, and when the Buddha saw it he was equally impressed. 'That's a very good wall,' he said solemnly, and began to pray. Suddenly the sacred bull appeared, walked over to the second architect, and sat on him. #Quote by Colin Higgins
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Jane Jacobs
#6. Planners, architects of city design, and those they have led along with them in their beliefs are not consciously disdainful of the importance of knowing how things work. On the contrary, they have gone to great pains to learn what saints and sages of modern orthodox planning have said about how cities ought to work and what ought to be good for people and business in them. They take this with such devotion that when contradictory reality intrudes, threatening tho shatter their dearly won learning, they must shrug reality aside. #Quote by Jane Jacobs
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Jack Dangermond
#7. We started with things like locating ski runs or locating a transmission line corridor or locating a new town or doing a coastal zone plan. We ourselves weren't doing the planning work, but we were doing all the mapping work for the landscape architects and planners who would subsequently incorporate the maps into their actual designs. #Quote by Jack Dangermond
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Annabelle Selldorf
#8. All clients think that they are architects. #Quote by Annabelle Selldorf
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Noam Chomsky
#9. Well, our economic system "works," it just works in the interests of the masters, and I'd like to see one that works in the interests of the general population. And that will only happen when they are the "principal architects" of policy, to borrow Adam Smith's phrase. I mean, as long as power is narrowly concentrated, whether in the economic or the political system, you know who's going to benefit from the policies―you don't have to be a genius to figure that out. That's why democracy would be a good thing for the general public. But of course, achieving real democracy will require that the whole system of corporate capitalism be completely dismantled―because it's radically anti-democratic. And that can't be done by a stroke of the pen, you know: you have to build up alternative popular institutions, which could allow control over society's investment decisions to be moved into the hands of working people and communities. That's a long job, it requires building up an entire cultural and institutional basis for the changes, it's not something that's just going to happen on its own. There are people who have written about what such a system might look like―kind of a "participatory economy," it's sometimes called. But sure, that's the way to go, I think. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Pedro Reyes
#10. Architects often have a mindset where you solve a problem, so you have a set of needs that you have to address. Often I feel that my projects have to have concrete applications. #Quote by Pedro Reyes
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Mark Helprin
#11. Though builders may build, in the main they follow the plans of architects. Teachers teach, but they must have a text. Politicians govern, but only upon the flow of commentary that raises them up or casts them down. #Quote by Mark Helprin
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Greg Grandin
#12. They were "galvanized iron bake ovens," said Carl LaRue, commenting on Fordlandia's foibles years later. "It is incredible that anyone should build a house like that in the tropics." Another visitor described them as "midget hells, where one lies awake and sweats the first half of the night, and frequently between midnight and dawn undergoes a fierce siege of heat-provoking nightmares." They seemed to be "designed by Detroit architects who probably couldn't envision a land without snow."19 Ford managers, said the priest, "never really #Quote by Greg Grandin
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Tom Kundig
#13. I learn more from creative people in other disciplines than I do even from other architects because I think they have a way of looking at the world that is really important, #Quote by Tom Kundig
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Joshua Prince-Ramus
#14. Architects have created this fake separation between creation and execution. You can see it in architecture schools, where the students look down on going to contracts classes. #Quote by Joshua Prince-Ramus
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Ann Lewin-Benham
#15. Spatial intelligence is virtually left out of formal education. In kindergarten we give children blocks and sand with which to build. Then we take those things away for the next twelve years of their education and expect kids to be architects and engineers. #Quote by Ann Lewin-Benham
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Kristen Lamb
#16. We are either architects OF the future or artifacts IN the future. #Quote by Kristen Lamb
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Jack Dangermond
#17. I have high hopes that GIS will become increasingly relevant for landscape architects as we make the tools easier to use for the design process of just inventory and mapping. #Quote by Jack Dangermond
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Vitruvius
#18. I think that men have no right to profess themselves architects hastily, without having climbed from boyhood the steps of these studies and thus, nursed by the knowledge of many arts and sciences, having reached the heights of the holy ground of architecture. #Quote by Vitruvius
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#19. All are architects of Fate, Working in these walls of Time; Some with massive deeds and great, Some with ornaments of rhyme. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Lebbeus Woods
#20. Architects are today routinely indoctrinated against the dumb box. Even advertising urges us to "think outside the box." Why? Because it is thought we all hate the box for being too dumb, too boring, and we want to escape it. If we do escape, by buying the advertised product, we usually find ourselves inside another dumb box populated by boring people just like us. It is clearly possible to live an extraordinary life inside a dumb box. Question: is it possible to lead an extraordinary life in anything other than a dumb box? #Quote by Lebbeus Woods
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Thomas Heatherwick
#21. It's important for people who criticise architects - whether what they build is or isn't to your taste - to appreciate how they devote themselves and put everything into bringing a building into existence. #Quote by Thomas Heatherwick
Desrosiers Architects quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#22. Let architects sing of aesthetics that bring Rich clients in hordes to their knees; Just give me a home, in a great circle dome Where stresses and strains are at ease. #Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Walt Whitman
#23. When the materials are ready, the architects shall appear. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Martin Filler
#24. The tall building, concentrating man in one place more densely than ever before, similarly concentrates the dilemma of our public architecture at the end of the twentieth century: whether the new forms made possible by technology are doomed by the low calculations of modern patrons and their architects. #Quote by Martin Filler
Desrosiers Architects quotes by John Prebble
#25. Architects and engineers are among the most fortunate of men since they build their own monuments with public consent, public approval and often public money. #Quote by John Prebble
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Jack Dangermond
#26. Landscape architecture is basically geodesign; it's designing geography. And yet geodesign is not only done by landscape architects, it's done by some of the world's largest corporations. #Quote by Jack Dangermond
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#27. ...Pat wondered what inspiration an artist might find in the attempts of twenty-first-century architects to impose their phallic triumphs on the cityscape. Had any artist ever painted a contemporary glass block, for instance, or any other product of architectural brutalism that had laid its crude hands here and there upon the city?...If a building did not lend itself to being painted, then surely that must be because it was inherently ugly, whatever its claims to utility. And if it was ugly, then what was it doing in this delicately beautiful city? #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Michael Arad
#28. As architects we are often involved in the concrete-steel-and-glass aspect of it, but cities are social structures, and to be involved in imagining the future of cities and the type of relationships and the types of places that we're making is something that intrigues me very much. #Quote by Michael Arad
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Matthew B. Crawford
#29. Architects face this threat, but builders don't. #Quote by Matthew B. Crawford
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Yanni Alexander Loukissas
#30. The reason for the difference between the architectural and engineering 'climate', so to speak, is very complex. It is partly a matter of terminology, partly a matter of historical accident, and the consequent training of architects and engineers, and mostly a matter of what is commonly supposed to be the difference in content or context - architecture being concerned with producing works of art; engineering with utility structures. #Quote by Yanni Alexander Loukissas
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Martin Filler
#31. Winning the Pritzker assures a flood of work in one's seventies and eighties, jobs necessarily carried out by assistants as the demands of modern-day cultural stardom and the inevitable waning of physical capacities prevent many architects from attaining the transcendent final phase more easily achieved by artists in other mediums. #Quote by Martin Filler
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Adolf Loos
#32. Architecture arouses sentiments in man. The architect's task therefore, is to make those sentiments more precise. #Quote by Adolf Loos
Desrosiers Architects quotes by David Chipperfield
#33. I'm suspicious of the idea of architects acting like business executives, brand managers, or purveyors of luxury goods. #Quote by David Chipperfield
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Farah Diba
#34. 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. #Quote by Farah Diba
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Lebbeus Woods
#35. If there is no idea in the drawing, there is no idea in the constructed project. That's the expression of the idea. Architects make drawings that other people build. I make the drawings. If someone wants to build from those, that's up to them. I feel I'm making architecture. I believe the building comes into being as soon as it's drawn. #Quote by Lebbeus Woods
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Jeffrey Zeldman
#36. Business owners should think of designers as architects, not decorators. #Quote by Jeffrey Zeldman
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#37. Artists use frauds to make human beings seem more wonderful than they really are. Dancers show us human beings who move much more gracefully than human beings really move. Films and books and plays show us people talking much more entertainingly than people really talk, make paltry human enterprises seem important. Singers and musicians show us human beings making sounds far more lovely than human beings really make. Architects give us temples in which something marvelous is obviously going on. Actually, practically nothing is going on. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Thom Mayne
#38. Architecture is the story of how we see ourselves. It is the architect's job to service everyday life. #Quote by Thom Mayne
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Jerry Saltz
#39. When museums are built these days, architects, directors, and trustees seem most concerned about social space: places to have parties, eat dinner, wine-and-dine donors. Sure, these are important these days - museums have to bring in money - but they gobble up space and push the art itself far away from the entrance. #Quote by Jerry Saltz
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Bill Rancic
#40. Currently, I am overseeing the construction of the new Trump Tower in Chicago. I am involved in meeting with the construction crews, architects and sales teams. I am learning a lot and working with some of the best in the business. #Quote by Bill Rancic
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Kevin Harris
#41. With an architect as your guide, you can
responsibly stop worrying about what spaces
someone else might want in a house and focus only on those things your house should include. #Quote by Kevin Harris
Desrosiers Architects quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#42. We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims. #Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Robert Irwin
#43. It's my observation that gardeners and gardening for a very long time have had to take a back seat. Architects are very famous; they've got huge projects. What goes on in and around them has been relegated to a very minor role. #Quote by Robert Irwin
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Martin Filler
#44. Cost overruns are not uncommon in architecture, particularly for designs that depart from structural or technological norms, or demand a finer quality of execution than commercial schemes - conditions typical of buildings for cultural institutions. Budgets are exceeded for many reasons, not all of them within an architect's control. #Quote by Martin Filler
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Herbert Muschamp
#45. A building does not have to be an important work of architecture to become a first-rate landmark. Landmarks are not created by architects. They are fashioned by those who encounter them after they are built. The essential feature of a landmark is not its design, but the place it holds in a city's memory. Compared to the place it occupies in social history, a landmark's artistic qualities are incidental. #Quote by Herbert Muschamp
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Isaac Newton
#46. The daily disappearance and the subsequent rise of the sun appeared to many of the ancients as a true resurrection; thus, while the east came to be regarded as the source of light and warmth, happiness and glory, the west was associated with darkness and chill, decay and death. This led to the custom of burying the dead so as to face the east when they rose again, and of building temples and shrines with an opening toward the east. To effect this, Vitruvius, two thousand years ago, gave precise rules, which are still followed by Christian architects. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Jan Gehl
#47. Cities must urge urban planners and architects to reinforce pedestrianism as an integrated city policy to develop lively, safe, sustainable and healthy cities. It is equally urgent to strengthen the social function of city space as a meeting place that contributes toward the aims of social sustainability and an open and democratic society. #Quote by Jan Gehl
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Frei Otto
#48. Most architects think in drawings, or did think in drawings; today, they think on the computer monitor. I always tried to think three dimensionally. The interior eye of the brain should be not flat but three dimensional so that everything is an object in space. We are not living in a two-dimensional world. #Quote by Frei Otto
Desrosiers Architects quotes by Edwin Lutyens
#49. There will never be great architects or great architecture without great patrons. #Quote by Edwin Lutyens
