A great building must begin with the unmeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed and in the end must be unmeasurable.

"I think Wright learned the most important aspect of architecture, the treatment of space, from Japanese architecture. When I visited Fallingwater in Pennsylvania, I found that same sensibility of space. But there was the additional sounds of nature that appealed to me." - Tadao Ando

Frank Lloyd Wright's "most beautiful job" - Fallingwater is a house built over a waterfall. What is so impressive about the project is that it streches out over 30 waterfalls.

"...“clients.” It is such a strange word, isn’t it? In a shop you are a customer, on a train you are a passenger, in a hospital you are a patient, in a class you are a student, in the economy at large you’d be a consumer. But client? The only people who have clients are lawyers, architects and prostitutes, all of whom have to live with the reputation that they are simply out to screw you. Only the prostitute is honest about it..."
