"Through all eras art is the same. We may live in a materialistic, consumer society, but it..."

“Through all eras art is the same. We may live in a materialistic, consumer society, but it doesn’t cost a thing to use our eyes. Design is not about how you detail a window; it’s about the people who will inhabit the space. Everything you do is for them, and everything in the space is important for the eyes. With each project you have to look hard at its fundamental components and ask, for example, What is a bathroom? What is a kitchen? If you don’t do this, you will end up planning the same old things and you won’t be able to suggest any new solutions. For it is these basic elements - the little things, rather than the more obvious luxurious fittings - that are so important to our profession, that make a building good.”

- Peter Märkli from his new monograph Everything one invents is true.
