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