On teaching architecture

"There are certain things that are teachable, and there are many things that are not teachable. For instance, you could probably not really teach design. You can clarify what other people thought about design and what it implies, but you can’t teach people to be talented. It’s an innate thing. People are born architects or they’re not born architects. I’ve seen very intelligent people who will never be architects, no matter how much they try..."
