The garden, by design, is concerned with both the interior and the land beyond the garden.
The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.
The love of gardening is a seed once sown that never dies.
When a finished work of 20th century sculpture is placed in an 18th century garden, it is absorbed by the ideal representation of the past, thus reinforcing political and social values that are no longer with us.
Who loves a garden loves a greenhouse too.
Good buildings come from good people, ad all problems are solved by good design.
Good design doesn’t date.
Good design is good business.
Thomas J. Watson
Good designers can create normalcy out of chaos; they can clearly communicate ideas through the organizing and manipulating of words and pictures.
Great designers seldom make great advertising men, because they get overcome by the beauty of the picture – and forget that merchandise must be sold.
James Randolph Adams
At a certain point, I just put the building and the art impulse together. I decided that building was a legitimate way to make sculpture.
What people want, above all, is order.
Whatever good things we build end up building us.
The work of art shows people new directions and thinks of the future. The house thinks of the present.
Those who look for the laws of Nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the creator.
Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.
If you give people nothingness, they can ponder what can be achieved from that nothingness.
The higher the building the lower the morals.
The interior of the house personifies the private world; the exterior of it is part of the outside world.
The loftier the building, the deeper must the foundation be laid.
