“A new way to think about creativity”
Det er let at identificere forfatteren Elizabeth Gilberts tanker om kreativitet, i arkitekternes hverdag – hvad vi forventer en arkitekt kan; hvordan kreativitet er en selvfølge og samtidig skal udføres indenfor en (altid for kort) tidsramme. Det er samtidigt et fag hvor vi ikke er bedre end vores sidste projekt, og bedømmes på evnen til at gøre det igen og igen.
Det er spændende, men også forståeligt hvis mange bliver forpustet undervejs. Har næsten en fornemmelse at arkitektskolen nakker halvdelen inden de er færdige!!?
Inden man ser forelæsningen er det meget morsomt at læse nogle af de mest brugte arkitekt citater…så man liige er opdateret i hvordan vi åååbenbart tænker, haha!
DA VINCI – “There are three classes of people: those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not see.”
GROPIUS – “Specialists are people who always repeat the same mistakes.”
F.L.WRIGHT – “The architect must be a prophet… a prophet in the true sense of the term… if he can’t see at least ten years ahead don’t call him an architect.”
KOOLHAAS – “Escape from the architecture ghetto is one of the major drivers and has been from the very beginning”
MICHELANGELO – “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark”
R.STERN – “To be an architect is to possess an individual voice speaking a generally understood language of form.”
P.JOHNSON – “All architects want to live beyond their deaths.”
LOOS – “Be not afraid of being called un-fashionable.”
KOOLHAAS – “The work in S, M, L, XL was almost suicidal. It required so much effort that our office almost went bankrupt.”
RUSKIN – “No person who is not a great sculptor or painter can be an architect. If he is not a sculptor or painter, he can only be a builder.”
MIES – “Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together. There it begins.”
LOOS – “Supply and demand regulate architectural form.”
ROGERS – “Form follows profit is the aesthetic principle of our times.”
DA VINCI – “The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.”
CORBUSIER – “I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.”
FOSTER – “Control is the wrong word. The practice is very much about sharing, and, in any creative practice, some individuals, whether partners or directors, are much closer to certain projects than I could ever be.”
