If you haven’t guessed by now, architecture is in our blood here at the ML Group. Not only do we love drawing and sketching what we feel are residential and commercial works of art, but it’s the opportunity to take a client’s ideas and dreams and bring them to life with cutting-edge design that fuels us every day. As we continue into this new year, here is a quick mash-up of powerful sayings and quotes about architecture and design from architects, writers, artists, and more – all of whom encourage and inspire us to create.


  • “Architecture is the thoughtful making of space.”Louis Kahn
  • “As an architect you design for the present with an awareness of the past for a future which is essentially unknown.”Norman Foster
  • “We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims.”R. Buckminister Fuller
  • “The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes. If you foolishly ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without it. Your life will be impoverished. But if you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life.”Frank Lloyd Wright
  • “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”Aristotle
  • “Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.”Frank Gehry
  • “You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.”Mark Twain
  • “In architecture, you should live for 150 years, because you have to learn in the first 75 years.”Renzo Piano
  • “People ignore design that ignores people.” Frank Chimero
  • “The difference between good and bad architecture is the time you spend.”David Chipperfield
  • “Architecture is a result of a process of asking questions and testing them and re-interrogating and changing in a repetitive way.”Thom Maine
