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. (Le Corbusier)
The design of good houses requires an understanding of both the construction materials and the behaviour of real humans. (Peter Morville)
Houses, like people, have personalities and, like the personalities of people, they are partly molded by all that has happened tot hem. (Louis Bromfield)
