David Chipperfield Inspirational & Motivational Quotes

  • It is difficult to separate oneself from one’s design moralities. – David Chipperfield
  • Britain loves a bargain, but you don’t get good, lasting architecture on the cheap. – David Chipperfield
  • The difference between good and bad architecture is the time you spend on it. – David Chipperfield
  • I suppose I’m trying to build an architecture that’s as timeless as possible, although we’re all creatures of our age. – David Chipperfield
  • I don’t think architecture is radical. How can something that takes years and costs millions be radical? – David Chipperfield
  • I like to be surrounded by books. My wife Evelyn has a Ph.D. in comparative literature, so we have a lot of her Spanish and German literature books which are wasted on me, plus a lot of novels and books on art and architecture shared by us both. Evelyn used to edit an art magazine called ‘FMR,’ so we have a common interest in design. – David Chipperfield
  • If you look at a building by Mies van der Rohe, it might look very simple, but up close, the sheer quality of construction, materials and thought are inspirational. – David Chipperfield
  • A building is no good if someone’s got to explain to you why it’s good. You can’t say you don’t know enough about architecture – that’s ridiculous. It’s got to work on many levels. – David Chipperfield
  • Seeing architecture differently from the way you see the rest of life is a bit weird. I believe one should be consistent in all that one does, from the books you read to the way you bring up your children. Everything you do is connected. – David Chipperfield
  • Architecture has curled up in a ball and it’s about itself. It has found itself either as a freakshow, where you’re not sure if it’s good or bad but at least it’s interesting, or at the behest of forces of commerce. – David Chipperfield
