Le Corbusier

To create architecture is to put in order. Put what in order? Function and objects.

Architecture is an essential part of life; it is something that you learn and acquire from.

A building is an extension of us — it depends on how we view it and perceive space.

Architecture has a context, and discovering that very context is what we need to do.

Creating flexible plans along with technology and, working around existing conditions and building laws is important.
