I am not attracted to straight angles or to the straight line—hard and inflexible—created by man.
I am attracted to free-flowing, sensual curves.
In architecture, as in any work of art, the most important thing is astonishment.
It is for a person to look and see that it is something different.
Architecture is all about curiosity.
Architecture is invention.
It must offer pleasure as well as practicality.
If you only worry about function, the result stinks.
