The Architect Says: Quotes, Quips, and Words of Wisdom


Publisher: Princeton Architectural Press ISBN: 9781616890933 Editor: Laura Dushkes Format: Hardcover, 160pp, 127 x 178mm

If there's anything architects like doing more than designing buildings, it's talking about architecture. Whether musing about their inspirations (a blank sheet of paper, the sun hitting the side of a building), expanding on each other's thoughts (on materials, collaboration, clients, and constraints), or dishing out a clever quip, architects make good copy. 

The Architect Says is a colourful compendium of quotations from more than one hundred of history's most opinionated design minds. Paired on page spreads like guests at a dinner party (an architect of today might sit next to a contemporary or someone from the eighteenth century) these sets of quotes convey a remarkable depth and diversity of thinking. Alternately wise and amusing, this elegant gem of a book makes the perfect gift for architects, students, and anyone curious about the ideas and personalities that have helped shape our built world.
