“Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of volumes brought together in the light. Our eyes are made to see forms in light... Cubes, cones, spheres, cylinders, or pyramids are great primary forms that light reveals to advantage... It is of the very nature of the plastic arts. “
“Architecture is a thing of the emotions... outside questions of construction and beyond them. You employ stone, wood and concrete, and with this materials you build houses and places: that is construction. Ingenuity is at work. But suddenly, you touch my heart, you do me good. I am happy and I say: ‘this is beautiful’ that is architecture. Art enters in.”
“When a job is handed to me I tuck it away in my memory, not allowing myself to make any sketches for months on end. That’s the way the human head is made: it has a certain independence. It is a box into which you own toss the elements of a problem any way, and then leave it to ‘float’. Then one fine day there comes an spontaneus movement from within; you take a pencil... and you give birth on the sheet of paper. The idea comes out... it is born.”
