Architecture can only be practiced with a profound knowledge of its history and power. Understanding both the potential of space and the insight of a client require commitment and the willingness to operate together in the realm of imagination and pragmatism. The merging of the two is when architecture becomes life.
To reach that point demands the ability to challenge all that is known, to invent beyond all that is expected and to maintain the dynamics of a process even at the most critical standstills. Once realized, the experience and the built object become the foundation for the next journey.
In biology there is a group of cells named Organizers, whose sole purpose is to direct the development of the other cells during embryonic growth. When the human being is fully formed, the Organizers disappear. We see our role as similar. We arrange the tones of human responsibility, imaginative design and technical proficiency into a space for life. Our hand should become invisible after that.
