Zde je pár citátů z úst těch nejslavnějších představitelů naší profese. Ukrývají mnoho pravdy. Váhala jsem, zda je přeložit do češtiny, ale bála jsem se, abych je tím neznehodnotila… takže zatím pouze v originále:
Nothing is as dangerous in architecture as dealing with separated problems. If we split life into separated problems we split the possibilities to make good building art.
Beauty: the adjustment of all parts proportionately so that one cannot add or subtract or change without impairing the harmony of the whole.
Leon Battista Alberti

We live in an almost perfect stillness and work with incredible urgency.
