Philip Johnson Quotes

All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space.

Architecture is the art of how to waste space.

I hate vacations. If you can build buildings, why sit on the beach?

I'm about four skyscrapers behind.
