John C. Portman, Jr. Quotes.
It is through accomplishment that man makes his contribution and contribution is life’s greatest reward.
Architecture is not a private affair; even a house must serve a whole family and its friends, and most buildings are used by everybody, people of all walks of life. If a building is to meet the needs of all the people, the architect must look for some common ground of understanding and experience.
We must learn to understand humanity better so that we can create an environment that is more beneficial to people, more rewarding, more pleasant to experience.
Buildings should serve people, not the other way around.
