What builds us makes us beautiful: Architecture of Florence 
"To create something beautiful, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail" - Giorgio Armani
“Walkers are 'practitioners of the city,' for the city is made to be walked. A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities. Just as language limits what can be said, architecture limits where one can walk, but the walker invents other ways to go.” 
― Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking
"I don't think architecture is only about shelter, is only about a very simple enclosure. It should be able to excite you, to calm you, to make you think" - Zaha Hadid
"We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us"- Winston Churchill 
"Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness"- Frank Gehry
“The door handle is the handshake of the building.” 
― Juhani Pallasmaa, The Eyes of the Skin: Architecture and the Senses
