Filipino Architects And Their Works
Anyone who has marvelled at the complexity of a historic church or simply read by sunlight beaming through a window knows that there is something magical about beautifully designed spaces. We hope these words from architecture and design legends will help inspire you in your next project. Editor's note: This blog post was updated from its original version on 13 March The Sun does not realise how wonderful it is until after a room is made.
The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes. If you foolishly ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without it.
Your life will be impoverished. But if you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life. A design isn't finished until someone is using it. Designers think everything done by someone else is awful, and that they could do it better themselves, which explains why I designed my own living room carpet, I suppose.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit. The life of a designer is one of fight: fight against the ugliness. The architect represents neither a Dionysian nor an Apollinian condition: here it is the mighty act of will, the will which moves mountains, the intoxication of the strong will, which demands artistic expression.
The most powerful men have always inspired the architects; the architect has always been influenced by power. Our opportunity, as designers, is to learn how to handle the complexity, rather than shy away from it, and to realize that the big art of design is to make complicated things simple.
One of the great beauties of architecture is that each time, it is like life starting all over again. To provide meaningful architecture is not to parody history, but to articulate it. Nothing in this world is more simple and more cheap than making cities that provide better for people.
People ignore design that ignores people. I understand that, today, some developers are asking architects to design eye-catching, iconic buildings. Fortunately, I've not had that kind of client so far. Good design is all about making other designers feel like idiots because the idea wasn't theirs.
Design should never say, "Look at me! If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you anywhere. Architecture is the will of an epoch translated into space. Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent. Good architecture is like a good therapy session, a good marriage, a good poem — gently and almost invisibly allowing you to be you, as flawed and as beautiful as you are.
In pure architecture the smallest detail should have a meaning or serve a purpose. I am simply submerged in work from five in the morning to eleven at night; almost need a few days off to escape a breakdown! The most innovative designers consciously reject the standard option box and cultivate an appetite for thinking wrong. Architecture never derived its force from stability of culture, but rather from the expression of those moments when that sense of stability slipped.
I've noticed the computer sometimes leads to rather bland decision-making; Now, anybody can do a wobbly, blobby building. For me, design is like choosing what I'm going to wear for the day — only much more complicated and not really the same at all. I like ruins because what remains is not the total design, but the clarity of thought, the naked structure, the spirit of the thing.
A doctor can bury his mistakes but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines. Give them the vision of Oz, show them the direction, convince them you can create the yellow brick road; the rest is civil engineering.
A profound design process eventually makes the patron, the architect, and every occasional visitor in the building a slightly better human being. Architecture is the art of how to waste space. I don't build in order to have clients. I have clients in order to build. People who build their own home tend to be very courageous. These people are curious about life.
They're thinking about what it means to live in a house, rather than just buying a commodity and making it work. Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness. Light, God's eldest daughter, is a principal beauty in a building. We live in a time of renaissance … cities are coming back to life, after a long neglect. 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. Architecture is a learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light.
The desire to reach for the sky runs very deep in the human psyche. I'm convinced that without bad design, the world would be a far less stimulating place; we would have nothing to marvel over and nothing to be nostalgic about.
Architecture is not based on concrete and steel, and the elements of the soil. It's based on wonder. An object should be judged by whether it has a form consistent with its use. Architecture is really about well-being. I think that people want to feel good in a space … On the one hand it's about shelter, but it's also about pleasure.
Very often the opinion of the clients must be disregarded in their own interest. The greatest architectural illusion is not Baroque fancy or Victorian flamboyant, but minimalism. We shape our buildings: therefore they shape us.
Architects spend an entire life with this unreasonable idea that you can fight against gravity. When I'm working on a problem, I never think about beauty. But when I'm finished, if the solution is not beautiful I know it's wrong. Any work of architecture that does not express serenity is a mistake. All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks.
One who drafts a plan of your house, and plans a draft of your money. People think that design is styling. Design is not style. It's not about giving shape to the shell and not giving a damn about the guts. Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need and beauty to produce something that the world didn't know it was missing.
Architecture is basically a container of something. I hope they will enjoy not so much the teacup, but the tea.
I find modernist design boring, but it's so much faster! The fundamental failure of most graphic, product, architectural and even urban design is its insistence on serving the God of Looking-Good rather than the God of Being-Good. You have to give this much to the Luftwaffe: when it knocked down our buildings it did not replace them with anything more offensive than rubble. We did that.
When we build, let us think that we build forever. I don't know why people hire architects and then tell them what to do. There is a danger when every building has to look spectacular; to look like it is changing the world. I don't care how a building looks if it means something, not to architects, but to the people who use it.
Here, then, is what I wanted to tell you of my architecture. I created it with courage and idealism, but also with an awareness of the fact that what is important is life, friends, and attempting to make this unjust world a better place in which to live.
The room is there for the human being — not the human being for the room. The events of human life, whether public or private, are so intimately linked to architecture that most observers can reconstruct nations or individuals in all the truth of their habits from the remains of their monuments or from their domestic relics.
We used to build civilizations. Now we build shopping malls. Architecture is the triumph of human imagination over materials, methods, and men, to put man into possession of his own Earth.
It is at least the geometric pattern of things, of life, of the human and social world.
50 Iconic Buildings Around the World You Need to See Before You Die
The aim of this paper is the analysis, in terms of proportional systems, of a number of buildings designed by the Spanish architect Alejandro de la Sota, whose work is characterized in general by a particularly clever and unconventional use of different dimensional and proportional systems, and can therefore be regarded as a significant perspective in the understanding of the design strategies in Modern architecture. These analyses lead also to a discussion on the nature of proportioning techniques in architecture, their relationship to analogous structures in musical composition, and the necessary compromises between the ideal proportions and the reality of construction, something inherent to the very nature of the architectural object. The aim of this paper is the analysis, in terms of proportional systems, of a number of buildings designed by the Spanish architect Alejandro de la Sota Pontevedra, Madrid, , whose work is characterized by:. A neo-constructivist attitude Frampton , p. A preference for simple rectangular volumes conceived as functional containers [see, for instance, Sota , p. An explicit refusal of any forms of rhetoric or formalism, argued either from an ethical standpoint Baldellou or for the sake of rationality, in the line of the most orthodox Modern Movement principles Puente , p.
