The architect’s humility

with 2 comments

Nordic Pavillion by Sverre Fehn

You’re…always trying to find the simplest solution. There are a lot of factors you have to take into account, but a simple solution often provides answers to several different questions. But you can’t just begin building—you have to reach an architectonic expression before you start. The drawing is vital. To be a good architect actually requires great humility. You have to make the most of the very small amount of knowledge you possess. Many young people today don’t have the patience. In my time we had to make maximum use of what little we had.
