Quotes or proverbs or sayings or dictum are wisdom that comes with experience and knowledge and realisation. Recently I have been captivated by quotes of all category just like my thoughts on all over hovering over new stuff. Out of the numerous quotes I have come across, I wanted to share 5 architecture quotes that has been more like engraved on my mind.

A room is not a room without natural light

Louis Khan

I believe natural lighting and ventilation is one of the keys for a healthy living space.

Yes is More

Bjarke Ingels

I like the spirit of saying YES to design for the society, community rather than considering a single entity separately.

God is in the details

Mies Van der Rohe

Even though there’s a history of who said it first (an artist) and the origination, this quote is highly accredited to Mies. Indeed, any creative person should work with details for more creativity resulting in improvised design.

Form follows fiction

Bernard Tschumi

Fiction in terms of Tschumi is culture or the idea that comes before function. In my eyes, his fiction is a form of a functional approach. Ole Scheeren adds more reasons to it.

I don’t know why people hire architects and then tell them what to do

Frank Gehry

Seriously, I wish clients who don’t trust their architects better not approach. There’s a lot of frustration I can rant on.

Why don’t you also share the quotes you aspire or like the most in the comments section…? I would love to know.


  1. “Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.” – Chuang Tzu

    It reminds me that bad days don’t last forever and behind them are lessons and experiences that will be important for my next stage.
