Quotes of Norman Foster

Британский архитектор.

  • ⋅Control is the wrong word. The practice is very much about sharing, and, in any creative practice, some individuals, whether partners or directors, are much closer to certain projects than I could ever be. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅Google has already tested robot cars in San Francisco. If they can navigate San Francisco, they can probably manage just about anywhere. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅I would never wear anything with a logo. That I really find difficult. It's a frustration that I'll find a nice shirt or something and it's got 50 prints of the logo on it - why do they do this? /Norman Foster
  • ⋅I hope that any expansion of London will learn from the planning examples of some of its most desirable areas such as Chelsea, Notting Hill, Belgravia and Mayfair. All are characterised by high density and a generosity of green spaces. They are all pedestrian-friendly with shops, entertainment, restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅I think you never stop learning. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅Manhattan, one of the most moneyed spots on the planet, also has one of the greatest concentrations of people in its skyscrapers. Its also, of course, the place where every architect wants to build his tower. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅Since Stonehenge, architects have always been at the cutting edge of technology. And you cant separate technology from the humanistic and spiritual content of a building. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅You cannot separate the buildings out from the infrastructure of cites and the mobility of transit. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅I was born in 1935, and as far back as I can remember, I was sketching designs. My first subject was an aircraft, which I imagined myself piloting. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅Every time I've flown an aircraft, or visited a steelworks, or watched a panel-beater at work, I've learned something new that can be applied to buildings. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅I tend to move between turtlenecks and shirts and ties. I don't really have a uniform in the sense that some people might. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅Didn't think her vision was consistent with the ORC, especially the way the Council wishes to work with the ORC. For example, with regard to the zoning ordinance, the Council sees a comprehensive approach, the ORC wants to review the ordinances and simplify them. Pam's vision was counter to that. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅Control is the wrong word. The practice is very much about sharing, and, in any creative practice, some individuals, whether partners or directors, are much closer to certain projects than I could ever be. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅If you weren’t an optimist, it would be impossible to be an architect. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅Everything inspires me; sometimes I think I see things others don’t. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅I'm not a creature of habit. I like to find things from unexpected sources. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅The pencil and computer are, if left to their own devices, equally dumb and only as good as the person driving them. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅I am always surprised by how much little emphasis schools of architecture, and indeed, many architects, place on the process of the mating of a building. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅There's a snobbery at work in architecture. The subject is too often treated as a fine art, delicately wrapped in mumbo-jumbo. In reality, it's an all-embracing discipline taking in science, art, maths, engineering, climate, nature, politics, economics. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅Architecture is an expression of values. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅It takes a lot of effort to make a building look effortless. /Norman Foster
  • ⋅Our object in life should be to accumulate a great number of grand questions to be asked and resolved in eternity ... /Norman Foster

Women think that all men are equal, and this is their strength, men think all women are different - it destroys them.
