Le Corbusier on Architecture

After a lengthy discussion with a few friends of mine on whether or not architecture, or building can contain meaning, and what makes up a “good” design, I think a nice Corbu sampling is in order.

“You employ stone, wood, and concrete, and with these materials you build houses and palaces. That is construction. Ingenuity is at work. But suddenly, you touch my heart, you do me good, I am happy and I say: ‘This is beautiful.’ That is architecture. Art enters in.” – Le Corbusier
