“Architecture is art. Architecture is the greatest pf the arts, and it encompasses thinking that the other arts don’t even deal with. Like the relationship of the work to the individual human being – the person who uses it; the person who experiences it; the person who sees it; and how that person perceives that space. You know, there’s an old adage that a sculptor can make a square wheel, and an architect has to make a round one. You have a certain responsibility not just to your client, but to the public at large with what you do"
Richard Meier, Architect.
“No other art makes the claims of social responsibility that architecture does and no other art has the arrogance to think it will remake the world"
Paul Goldberger, Architectural Critic. Building Up and Tearing Down.
“Yes, architecture is art. It is the most contaminated art. Also, it is the most imposing. If you’re a bad writer, people won’t read your book. If you’re a bad architect, the city has to live with your work for a very long time"
Renzo Piano, Architect.
