Anthony Spennato  French Architect - Photographs are the unique and precise memories of time already gone by.

The best #nights are when you're having too much #fun to take many #pictures - Thank you @sofitukker, last night was unique to say the least!

The more #social #media we have, the more we think we're #connecting, yet we are really #disconnecting from each other - @jr #athens #2016

It is better to have your head in the #clouds, and know where you are... than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them, and think that you are in #paradise - #greece #2016

#Sunshine is #delicious, #rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad #weather, only different kinds of good weather - #London #2016

What #Zaha did.

Today I found a #closed #door. The welcoming receptionist that would give me a tour of the place a year ago was not here. Passers-by were pointing at your name on the #window, on their way to work. And although it seemed impossible yesterday, this closed door was a physical sign that meant something was over. I left you some #flowers. The least I could do.

Some will give a better recollection of your carreer. The @vitrafurniture fire station is the very first work you did that I visited and although most of the time your designs gave me mixed feelings I will only say that I have the utmost respect for the self made Iraqi #woman you were who became the very first and only to date female #Architect to be awarded the Pritzker prize. That is something that should be a source of inspiration for us all, especially today. A baby Rem who like others became a Name.
I was not a huge supporter of your work, but I always liked the controversy. I liked debating it. You were like a high school crush, a far souvenir from my first architectural years when we learn to remember those names that will inspire us. How many hours spent analyzing the @museomaxxi or learning about the Innsbruck ski jump? A starchitect as some say. A term that I hate as it turns your (and others) hard #work and deserved recognition into glitter and fame.

Yesterday you left us but your #legacy will live on because your name, and your architectural habits, outdid yourself. And if “#Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light”, then you were a true master of it. I will miss the debate. I will miss the controversy. Thank you and #goodbye.

'Life is like a box of chocolates.' Your #career is like a box of #chocolates - you never know what you're going to get. But everything you get is going to teach you something along the way and make you the #person you are today. That's the exciting part - it's an #adventure in itself - #London#strangeandfamiliarcomp #reallondoners

The ability to make somebody feel something: that's #art. However you look at it, whether you're an author, a #painter, a #singer, a rapper, a spoken-word #artist - art - #London #strangeandfamiliarcomp #reallondoners

We are all now #connected by the #Internet, like #neurons in a giant #brain - S. Hawking #london #2016

#People need to spread #love towards #strangers. We all bleed the same blood and we are all part of a #global #community now - #london #2016

#Happy New Year #2016 to you all. Let it be the year of #freedom of speech and #creation, the year of #Art in all its forms. Remember #technology can be our best #friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a #daydream, to #imagine something wonderful, because we're too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell #phone - #london #newyear
