Quisenberry Architects quotes by C.J. Anderson
#1. There is no God and we are his inventors. Humanity designed him like some sinister masochistic architects. The infinite blueprint for our intellectual enslavement. #Quote by C.J. Anderson
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Antonio Banderas
#2. There were many generations of Latino people coming to this country, coming from difficult political or social situations in their own countries, and they worked very hard to have their kids go to universities. Well, those kids came out and they are now doctors and architects, or they are on the Supreme Court. That has a reflection in Hollywood. So, we are actually very proud that our characters are Latinos, and I think it's good for diversity and cultural interaction. #Quote by Antonio Banderas
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Jerry Saltz
#3. 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
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Dan Quisenberry
#4. It's easy to enjoy your job and enjoy other people when things are going good. When you're faced with adversity is when the character of men is measured. There's a Mennonite proverb, 'Man, like a tree, is measured best when cut down.' #Quote by Dan Quisenberry
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Dan Quisenberry

Quisenberry Architects quotes by Helmut Jahn
#6. Most architects say: I want to use this type of glass, even if it's too reflective or doesn't let enough light in. However, the use of a certain type of glass might change the comfort level. #Quote by Helmut Jahn
Quisenberry Architects quotes by J. Carter Brown
#7. The Washingtonian said it shouldn't be built. The gallery's East Building is now considered a triumph, and members of the American Association of Architects have voted it one of the best buildings of all time. #Quote by J. Carter Brown
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Oliver Bowden
#8. To say that nothing is true, is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say that everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic. #Quote by Oliver Bowden
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Cat Ellington
#9. Songwriters are the architects of the music industry. Without a songwriter, there could not, and would not be a music industry. We create the Blueprint #Quote by Cat Ellington
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Paul Graham
#10. I suspect few housing projects in the US were designed by architects who expected to live in them. You see the same thing in programming languages. C, Lisp, and Smalltalk were created for their own designers to use. Cobol, Ada, and Javawere created for other people to use. If you think you're designing
something for idiots, odds are you're not designing something good, even for idiots. #Quote by Paul Graham
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Jimenez Lai
#11. I think of architecture as language, and I look within the intra-communication between architects. #Quote by Jimenez Lai

Quisenberry Architects quotes by Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe
#15. It is no use working with other architects. What can they do? Who does what? #Quote by Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Simon Mainwaring
#16. Companies and their brands need to reach out and speak directly to consumers, to honor their values, and to form meaningful relationships with them. They must become architects of community, consistently demonstrating the values that their customer community expects in exchange for their loyalty and purchases. #Quote by Simon Mainwaring
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Howard Mansfield
#17. We have everywhere an absence of memory. Architects sometimes talk of building with context and continuity in mind, religious leaders call it tradition, social workers say it's a sense of community, but it is memory we have banished from our cities. We have speed and power, but no place. Travel, but no destination. Convenience, but no ease. #Quote by Howard Mansfield
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Walter Gropius
#18. Architects, painters, and sculptors must recognize anew and learn to grasp the composite character of a building both as an entity and in its separate parts. Only then will their work be imbued with the architectonic spirit which it has lost as salon art. Together let us desire, conceive, and create the new structure of the future, which will embrace architecture and sculpture and painting in one unity and which will one day rise toward heaven from the hands of a million workers like the crystal symbol of a new faith. #Quote by Walter Gropius
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Rem Koolhaas
#19. In a script, you have to link various episodes together, you have to generate suspense and you have to assemble things - through editing, for example. It's exactly the same in architecture. Architects also put together spatial episodes to make sequences. #Quote by Rem Koolhaas
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Thom Mayne
#20. Architecture is the story of how we see ourselves. It is the architect's job to service everyday life. #Quote by Thom Mayne
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Casey Wilson
#21. I've met architects before, and they're not living the life we see on TV. #Quote by Casey Wilson
Quisenberry Architects quotes by William S. Burroughs
#22. Artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Parker Stevenson
#23. I did a comparison of a school of architects known as the New York Five. I compared their articulation of wall surfaces, which I enjoyed very much. #Quote by Parker Stevenson
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Jose Andres
#24. When we are trying to come up with new health laws, you bring doctors, you bring experts in medicine. In urban planning, you bring the best architects. How it is possible that when we are talking about the way we are going to feed America, no chef shows up in the room? #Quote by Jose Andres
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Frank Gehry
#25. Most of our cities built since the war are bland. They're modernist, they're cold, and now architects want to go back to that. #Quote by Frank Gehry
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Anthony Holden
#26. I personally felt that his ad hominen attacks on British architects were not the sort of thing a Prince of Wales should be doing because, apart from anything else, they put various people out of business. #Quote by Anthony Holden
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Ove Arup

Quisenberry Architects quotes by Frank Gehry

Quisenberry Architects quotes by Dan Quisenberry

Quisenberry Architects quotes by Adam Sisman
#30. For five years the refugees of Eastern Europe had been pouring into Austria through every fast-closing gap in the barbed wire: crashing frontiers in stolen cars and lorries, across minefields, clinging to the underneath of trains, to be corralled and questioned and decided over in their thousands, while they played chess on wooden packing cases and showed each other photographs of people they would never see again. They came from Hungary and Romania and Poland and Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia and sometimes Russia, and they hoped they were on their way to Canada and Australia and Palestine. They had travelled by devious routes and often for devious reasons. They were doctors and scientists and bricklayers. They were truck drivers, thieves, acrobats, publishers, rapists and architects. #Quote by Adam Sisman
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Douglas MacArthur
#31. I stand on this rostrum with a sense of deep humility and great pride - humility in the weight of those great American architects of our history who have stood here before me; pride in the reflection that this home of legislative debate represents human liberty in the purest form yet devised. #Quote by Douglas MacArthur
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Ben Nicholson
#32. I feel most strongly about Jerusalem, because architects ultimately have to address that city. #Quote by Ben Nicholson
Quisenberry Architects quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#33. The members of the functional and socially mobilized under class must, in some very real way, be seen as the architects of their own fate. If not, they could be, however marginally, on the conscience of the comfortable. There could be a disturbing feeling, however fleeting, of unease, even guilt. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Jason Wu
#34. Brizo has been my single biggest sponsor since I began as a designer. Brizo wanted to be involved in many different areas of design - they had already worked with several architects, and fashion was an area they were interested in moving into. #Quote by Jason Wu
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Cedric Price
#35. Architects (should) involve themselves continuously in anticipatory design as recommended by Buckminster Fuller #Quote by Cedric Price
Quisenberry Architects quotes by George R R Martin
#36. There are two kinds of writers. There are architects and gardeners. The architects do blueprints before they drive the first nail. The gardeners just dig a hole and plant the seed and see what comes up. #Quote by George R R Martin
Quisenberry Architects quotes by David Chipperfield
#37. Most architects work in studios largely divorced from academia, as if ideas, criticism and historical research were irrelevant. #Quote by David Chipperfield
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Tom Kundig
#38. 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
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Jonathan Meades
#39. In creating a building, architects do think they're making the world a better place. And then they hope to make the world an even better place by making another thing which will be even bigger than the last thing ... and it is part of the pathology of being an architect to believe thus, and they do believe it, despite all the evidence to the contrary. #Quote by Jonathan Meades
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Steven Holl
#40. Some architects, such as John Lautner, never really did anything other than houses. His entire portfolio is basically residential. There's nothing wrong with that. #Quote by Steven Holl
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Brian Keenan
#41. I loved the exuberance of the place. A sense of liberation and love of life penetrated every room. His home was like his poetry, full of hints of fantasy, allegory and hedonism. Neruda's presence was everywhere writ large on the house. He had build it, seemingly haphazardly without any architect's plans or permission from authority. In a sense, the house had the same structure as a poem on first reading - awkward and confused. Yet wandering through it was like wandering through his poems. Suddenly everything fell in to place. A romantic avant-garde poet could not have lived anywhere else. #Quote by Brian Keenan
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Patti Smith
#42. The city was a real city, shifty and sexual. I was lightly jostled by small herds of flushed young sailors looking for action on Forty-Second Street, with it rows of x-rated movie houses, brassy women, glittering souvenir shops, and hot-dog vendors. I wandered through Kino parlors and peered through the windows of the magnificent sprawling Grant's Raw Bar filled with men in black coats scooping up piles of fresh oysters. The skyscrapers were beautiful. They did not seem like mere corporate shells. They were monuments to the arrogant yet philanthropic spirit of America. The character of each quadrant was invigorating and one felt the flux of its history. The old world and the emerging one served up in the brick and mortar of the artisan and the architects. I walked for hours from park to park. In Washington Square, one could still feel the characters of Henry James and the presence of the author himself … This open atmosphere was something I had not experienced, simple freedom that did not seem oppressive to anyone. #Quote by Patti Smith
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Frank Lloyd Wright
#43. Can it be that the ultimate chapter of this new era of democratic freedom is going to be deformed by this growing drift toward conformity encouraged by politics and sentimental education? If so then by what name shall our national American character be justly called? Doomed to beget only curiosities or monstrosities in art, architecture and religion by artists predominant chiefly by compliance with commercial expediency?
Machine standardization is apparently growing to mean little that is inspiring to the human spirit. We see the American workman himself becoming the prey of gangsterism made official. Everything as now professionalized, in time dies spiritually. Must the innate beauty of American life succumb or be destroyed? Can we save truth as beauty and beauty as truth in our country only if truth becomes the chief concern of our serious citizens and their artists, architects and men of religion, independent of established authority? #Quote by Frank Lloyd Wright
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Dan Quisenberry
#44. I'm probably the only relief pitcher who has more saves than strikeouts. #Quote by Dan Quisenberry
Quisenberry Architects quotes by Carl Von Clausewitz
#45. Architects and painters know precisely what they are about as long as they deal with material phenomena ... But when they come to the aesthetics of their work, when they aim at a particular effect on the mind or on the senses, the rules dissolve into nothing but vague ideas. #Quote by Carl Von Clausewitz
