Na Comunidade do blog C0TA ZER0 no site do Orkut, abri um fórum com o tema: o que é e o que nao é arquitetura. Pensava em receber apenas as opinioes dos leitores sobre um assunto que nao é tao fácil de discutir, mas a página de respostas foi além do esperado – os tópicos logo viraram um resumo de opinioes dos grandes nomes da arquitetura.
” Tadao Ando: I believe that the way people live can be directed a little by architecture.
Ralph Erskine: The job of buildings is to improve human relations: architecture must ease them, not make them worse.
Michael Graves: I see architecture not as Gropius did, as a moral venture, as truth, but as invention, in the same way that poetry or music or painting is invention.
Walter Gropius: Architecture begins where engineering ends.
Jean Nouvel: Each new situation requires a new architecture.
Richard Rogers: My passion and great enjoyment for architecture, and the reason the older I get the more I enjoy it, is because I believe we – architects – can effect the quality of life of the people.
Frank Lloyd Wright: The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.”
