lecorbusier_studio2A house is a machine for living in. (1923)

Modern life demands, and is waiting for, a new kind of plan, both for the house and the city. (1923)

Space and light and order. Those are the things that people need just as much as they need bread or a place to sleep.

“The history of architecture is the history of the struggle for light.”

“You don’t start a revolution by fighting the state but by presenting the solutions.”

I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.

The purpose of construction is TO MAKE THINGS HOLD TOGETHER; of architecture TO MOVE US.

Light creates ambience and feel of a place, as well as the expression of a structure.
