Buckminster Fuller & Olson Kundig

Buckminster Fuller;
[1] There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you its going to be a butterfly
[2] Love is a metaphysical gravity
[3] Doing more and more with less and less until you can do everything with nothing
[4] Simplicity is the true measure of complexity
[5] Reorganising the environment for prosperity
[6] Nature is trying very hard to make us succeed, but nature does not depend on us

Olson Kundig;
[1] Architecture is the intersection between the poetic and the rational
[2] Contradictory objectives - open to environment yet closed for privacy
[3] A space is not constrained by area inside a building, a space is shaped by it
[4] Architecture is a movement and it transforms its surroundings
[5] Homes are primitive places
[6] Architecture must be as intimate as a family member

Concept: Simplicity is the true measure of complexity (Buckminster Fuller)

DETAILS, when they are successful, are not mere decoration. They do not distract or entertain. They lead to an understanding of the whole of which they are an inherent point.
