Product description


"When it's 4 am and you're sitting in a confused mess of crumpled trace paper and dull X-acto blades, turn to this trusty compilation and try to find the light." --

"A pocketbook of inspiration.... Coming across unexpected quotes or ones that hit a nerve makes a flip through the book great. A couple of my favorites includes Jan Kaplicky: 'It's not a sign of creativity to have sixty-five ideas for one problem. It's just a waste of energy.' and Frank Gehry: 'I don't know why people hire architects and then tell them what to do.' These and other quotes make the book a great gift." --

"The Architect Says: Quotes, Quips, and Words of Wisdom gathers timeless wisdom on design and architecture from more than 100 of history's most vocal-and often dissenting-minds. What emerges, besides the fascinating tapas bar of ideas about the art and science of building, is the subtle but essential reminder that what lies at the heart of creative legacy aren't universal formulas and unrelenting tenets but perspective, conviction, and personality." -- Brain Pickings
