Some notable quotes that I believe illustrates what an Architect does,

“An Architect knows his job is done, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away.”

- Based on a quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Airman's Odyssey

“The architect must be a prophet… a prophet in the true sense of the term… if he can’t see at least ten years ahead don’t call him an architect.”

- Frank Lloyd Wright

 “The most important tool for an Architect is his eraser.”

- Frank Lloyd Wright

 “Every great architect is - necessarily - a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.”

- Frank Lloyd Wright

"There is nothing more uncommon than common sense."

- Frank Lloyd Wright

"All fine architectural values are human values, else not valuable."

- Frank Lloyd Wright

"Early in life, I had to choose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility. I chose honest arrogance and have seen no occasion to change."

- Frank Lloyd Wright

"Form follows function- that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union."

- Frank Lloyd Wright

"A great architect is not made by way of a brain nearly so much as he is made by way of a cultivated, enriched heart."

- Frank Lloyd Wright

 “Our job is to give the client … not what he wants but what he never dreamed that he wanted; and when he gets it, he recognizes it as something he wanted all the time.”

- Sir Denys Lasdon

A good Architect can’t sleep because a piece of the puzzle is missing.

A bad Architect can’t sleep because his conscience won’t let him.

 

Questions to ponder...

Do you agree with Sir Denys Lasdon?

If not, how would you describe the job of an Architect (of any domain)?

What do others in your Enterprise believe?
