TOP 5: 1. „All art has been contemporary.“ Maurizio Nannucci Zero point architecture. Your project starts today. Our space allocation plans ignore traditional human perception patterns in favour of an economical, functional and artistic solution. This attitude of timeless identity is generating real constructional sustainability as regards to urban development, social, cultural, functional, constructive and artistic responsibilities; minimising overheads in accordance with the actual technical and energetical opportunities, way up to surplus energy buildings. 2. „Architecture is everything but everything else is not architecture.“ Hermann Czech Architecture of necessity. FRIENDSARCHITECTS are planning neither expensive nor cheap, but right. Planning right would save hundreds of billions of dollars each year worldwide. 3. „Architecture and happiness.“ Alain deBotton Authenticity is happiness. The feeling of happiness about realness of space and used materials is simultaneously highly cost-optimising. 4. „Less is more.“ Mies van der Rohe Purism is freedom. Men are challenged by the mediated 1 : 1 experience as an individual and men will be formally mature by the puristic environment. 5. „Beauty is truth, truth beauty.“ John Keats Beyond an escape in aesthetics a demand on authenticity is generating generous beauty and truth.
