Sample Quotes on Architecture:

The surest test of the civilization of a people—at least, as sure as any—afforded by mechanical art is to be found in their architecture, which presents so noble a field for the display of the grand and the beautiful, and which, at the same time, is so intimately connected with the essential comforts of life.

--William Hickling Prescott

It does not much matter that an individual loses two or three hundred pounds in buying a bad picture, but it is to be regretted that a nation should lose two or three hundred thousand in raising a ridiculous building.

—John Ruskin

The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.

--Frank Lloyd Wright

You can put down a bad book; you can avoid listening to bad music; but you cannot miss the ugly tower block opposite your house.

—Renzo Piano

Great buildings that move the spirit have always been rare. In every case they are unique, poetic, products of the heart.

—Arthur Erickson

Architecture is really about well-being. I think that people want to feel good in a space… On the one hand it’s about shelter, but it’s also about pleasure.

—Zaha Hadid

I believe very strongly, and have fought since many years ago—at least over 30 years ago—to get architecture not just within schools, but architecture talked about under history, geography, science, technology, art.

—Richard Rogers
