Quote on Architecture by famous Architect’s

# GILBERT KEITH CHESTERTON (1874-1936)

I don’t think of form as a kind of architecture. The architecture is the result of the forming. It is the kinesthetic and visual sense of position and wholeness that puts the thing into the realm of art.

# JOHN RUSKIN (1819-1900) English art critic

Form ever follows function.

Architecture : Ah, to build, to build! That is the noblest art of all the arts. Painting and sculpture are but images, are merely shadows cast by outward things on stone or canvas, having in themselves no separate existence. Architecture, existing in itself, and not in seeming a something it is not, surpasses them as substance shadow.

# LOUIS H. SULLIVAN

When you look on one of your contemporary ‘good copies’ of historical remains, ask yourself the question: Not what style, but in what civilization is this building? And the absurdity, vulgarity, anachronism and solecism of the modern structure will be revealed to you in a most startling fashion.

# ARTHUR ERICKSON

Life is rich, always changing, always challenging, and we architects have the task of transmitting into wood, concrete, glass and steel, of transforming human aspirations into habitable and meaningful space.

  1. I love this: “Ah, to build, to build! That is the noblest art of all the arts.” Although I’m also an artist so I take some exception. 🙂
