Quote #95 – Moshe Safdie

Quote #89 – Antoni Gaudí

Ornamentation has been, is, and will be polychrome. Nature does not present us with an object in monochrome, totally uniform with respect to colour – not in vegetation, not in geology, not in topography, not in the animal kingdom. Always the contrast of colour is more or less lively, and for this reason we must colour wholly or in part every architectural element. – Antoni Gaudí
