"We wanted this house to embrace its landscape, we designed a house that would not engage with its landscape and become landscape." - Julien De Smedt in dezeen.com.
"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you." - Frank Lloyd Wright.
"I do not think that architecture is only about shelter, is only a very simple enclosure. It should be, to you, to make you think." - Zaha Hadid.
