SOME GREAT ARCHITECTS’ REFLECTIONS
Architecture is the art of building.» Marcus Vitruvius
«A bicycle shed is a building; Lincoln Cathedral is a work of architecture.» Nikolaus Pevsner
«Architecture is the inevitable art, w are in continuous contact with it …we can avoid contemplating paintings, sculptures or any other work of art but architecture, it affects us constantly, configures our behavior and conditions our state of mind… Richard Leland
«The house has to please everyone, unlike a work of art that doesn’t have to please anyone. The work of art is a private affair of the artist. The house is not. The work of art is placed in the world without any requirement that forces it to be born. The house covers a need […] Shouldn’t architecture be understood outside the art?» Adolf Loos
«Only a very small part of architecture is included in the world of art: funerary and commemorative monuments. Everything else, everything that has a purpose has to be excluded from the world of art.» Adolf Loos
«Architecture embraces the entire physical environment that surrounds human life. We cannot escape from it as long as we are part of civilization, because architecture is the sum of modifications and alterations introduced into the land in order to satisfy human needs.» William Morris
«The dominion of nature creates culture through technique […] Construction as technique is the way to dominate our environment to turn it into architecture.» Juan Calduch
AND WHAT ABOUT ARCHITECTURE AS TECHNIQUE?
Unlike the arts, sciences, philosophy or any other way of knowing the world, technique is essentially a way of doing. Therefore, technique defines humanity.
It is the way it tries to dominate Nature. It defines the way we live.
The technical dimension places architecture on the border with the arts, goes beyond individual capacity (it is a collective work) and requires a programming of its execution.
HOW IT BEGINS?
Architecture arises from a need or a problem that calls for change.
Architecture is not a utopian event, it is closely linked to the place understood as a support and an active part that determines the relationships between things.
