"Architecture - a conventional term that must be used for lack of a better one - is, and some of Roger Taillibert's constructions are significant enough in this respect, a notion that covers at the same time a work of intuitive creation, intellectual reflection and constructive logic. Architecture is also something more, something indefinable that, as Paul Valery wrote very aptly, makes some buildings sing where as others remain silent. One cannot speak about roman architecture without evoking the civil engineering works that are the amphitheatres, the baths and aqueducts, as many works of art where technical and functional problems were perfectly solved and where architectural qualities are undeniable. Roger Taillibert is very conscious of the deep ambiguity inferred in the admitted notions of architecture and architect. In this matter, he does not consider himself as an architect or an engineer, but as a builder, that is, architect and engineer, architect or engineer, according to the needs, programs and stages of a construction project..."
