The enemy of art is the absence of constraint.
Congestion is good.
Raymond Hood, architect of Rockefeller Center
There is nothing more tentative than an established order... What seems to be without order, often turns out to be highly ordered.
Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.
Elegance is refusal.
In every case one must achieve a simultaneous solution of opposites... This harmony cannot be achieved by any other means than those of art.
There’s no order outside the order of the material.
Innovate as a last resort.
Deep within every revolution, discreetly hidden, resides a classicism, which is a form of constant.
