If there's anything architects like doing more than designing buildings, it's talking about architecture.
Whether musing about their inspirations (a blank sheet of paper, the sun hitting the side of a
building), expanding on each other's thoughts (on materials, collaboration, clients, and constraints),
or dishing out a clever quip, architects make good copy. The Architect Says is a colorful
compendium of quotations from more than one hundred of history's most opinionated design minds.
Paired on page spreads like guests at a dinner party-an architect of today might sit next to a
contemporary or someone from the eighteenth century-these sets of quotes convey a remarkable
depth and diversity of thinking. Alternately wise and amusing, this elegant gem of a book makes the
perfect gift for architects, students, and anyone curious about the ideas and personalities that have
helped shape our built world.
