"Traditions allow us to recognise the lessons of history, enrich our lives and offer our inheritance to the future.
Local, regional and national traditions retain the uniqueness of communities in the advance of globalisation.

"The goal of any one assisting in the education of architects must be to instil in them the ability to work with others as they use their art to embody beauty in buildings, justice in cities, and grace in the lives touched by their works."
