“As an architect, I try to be guided not by habit but by a conscious sense of the past—by precedent, thoughtfully considered…As an artist, I frankly write about what I like in architecture: complexity and contradiction. From what we find we like—what we are easily attracted to—we can learn much of what we really are."

Robert Venturi

"In a society that celebrates the inessential, architecture can put up a resistance, counteract the waste of forms and meanings, and speak its own language. I believe that the language of architecture is not a question of a specific style. Every building is built for a specific use in a specific place and for a specific society"

Peter Zumthor
