Architecture and Design

Architecture is both the process and the product of planning, designing, and constructing buildings or any other structures.

BDG was born from a love of Architecture.  Greg Moore is the Managing Director and is both an Architect and Builder and the principal of BDG and BDGC.  He has a wide range of experience in commercial and residential architecture and together with the BDG team is proud of the strong Architectural heritage of the Group.

Some thoughts to ponder

“God is in the details.”

Mies van der Rohe

“Architecture should speak of its time and place, but yearn for timelessness.”

Frank Gehry

“When I’m working on a problem, I never think about beauty. But when I’ve finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it’s wrong.”

Buckminster Fuller

“As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, and for a future which is essentially unknown.”

Norman Foster

“To provide meaningful architecture is not to parody history but to articulate it.”

Daniel Libeskind

“To create, one must first question everything.”

Eileen Gray

“Architecture is really about well-being. I think that people want to feel good in a space… On the one hand it’s about shelter, but it’s also about pleasure.”

Zaha Hadid

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

Leonardo da Vinci

“I don’t know why people hire Architects and then tell them what to do.”

Frank Gehry

My work is not about “form follows function”, but “form follows beauty”

Oscar Niemeyer
