It has been said that Architecture is the Mother of all the Arts.  I believe Film is the Synthesis of all the Arts.  But in today’s photo, I highlight architecture with several quotes about it’s nature and affects on our human experience.

“The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.”  Frank Lloyd Wright

“Architecture is the will of an epoch translated into space.” Ludwig Rohe

“The space within becomes the reality of the building.” Frank Lloyd Wright

“There are three forms of visual art: Painting is art to look at, sculpture is art you can walk around, and architecture is art you can walk through.” Dan Rice

“Architecture, of all the arts, is the one which acts the most slowly, but the most surely, on the soul.” Ernest Dimnet

“All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space.”  Philip Johnson

“We shape our buildings and our buildings shape us.”  Winston Churchill
