“I am an architect. I am an artist. I make things.”


Vitruvius (80–15 BC)


“This knowledge [of architecture] is the child of practice and theory…architects who have aimed at acquiring manual skill without scholarship have never been able to reach a position of authority to correspond to their pains, while those who relied only upon theories and scholarship were obviously hunting the shadow, not the substance.”
