• Death of an Architect | Via
In just over a year’s time, there have been a number of well-known and highly-regarded members of the architecture community who have passed away. Though the impact of the loss is felt deeply, their legacies continue to inspire fellow architects and the design-minded, both present and future. Today’s post honors seven individuals who spent their lives improving the built environment with their structures, ideas, words, and passion.
Oscar Niemeyer  |  1907 – 2012  |  Architect, Planner  |  BrasíliaOf course, I have given my engineers some headaches over the years, but they go with me. I have always wanted my buildings to be as light as possible, to touch the ground gently, to swoop and soar, and to surprise.
Rick Mather  | 1937 – 2013  |  Architect  |  LondonThey had hired a real estate expert to evaluate the viability of the shops [at Southbank Centre]. He said it was bound to fail. Don’t ever trust “experts.”
Ada Louise Huxtable  |  1921 – 2013  |  Architectural Critic  |  New York NYBuildings change; they adapt to needs, times and tastes.
Paolo Soleri  |  1920 – 2013  |  Architect, Visionary  |  Paradise Valley AZArchitecture is the physical form of the ecology of the human, the configuration of matter which allows for the best energetic and willful flux.
Lebbeus Woods  |  1940 – 2012  |  Architect, Artist  |  New York NYThe destiny of human beings, as I see it, is to experience the world they inhabit — the universe inhabited by the immense scope of the human mind — and to construct that experience, that reality, in works of uncompromised energy, unrestrained by fear.
Fred Bassetti  |  1917 – 2013  |  Architect  |  Seattle WAThe most important characteristic of any house is that it should have a sense of sincerity. It should not yell, ‘Look at me!’ We can tell a phony from a person of sincerity very quickly. It’s harder with buildings, because people don’t know how everything goes together and what the possibilities are.
Kathryn Findlay  |  1953 – 2014  |  Architect  |  LondonProfessional respect is important to me rather than fame. Architecture is complex — it’s not a superficial brand game. If branding and fame were my goals, I’d be doing something else.
