Be truthful, nature only sides with truth.
Be not afraid of being called un-fashionable.
Supply and demand regulate architectural form.
The room has to be comfortable; the house has to look habitable.
The Potemkin city of which I wish to speak here is none other than our dear Vienna herself.
The house has to serve comfort. The work of art is revolutionary; the house is conservative.
The work of art shows people new directions and thinks of the future. The house thinks of the present.
Architecture arouses sentiments in man. The architect's task therefore, is to make those sentiments more precise.
The house has to please everyone, contrary to the work of art which does not. The work is a private matter for the artist. The house is not.
It does not do to use it with forms whose origin is intimately bound up with a specific material simply because no technical difficulties stand in the way.
