STUDIO | "What is architecture? Shall I define it, like Vitruvius, the art of building? Vitruvius mistakes the effect for the cause. The conception - I say the idea - of the work precedes its execution. "... the image of the primordial hut, which precedes its construction in the mind of man ...' represents' ... a production of the spirit ... 'and it is what' ... constitutes architecture and which we can consequently define as the art of producing and bringing any building to perfection '(E.L. Boullée).
PROJECTS | “Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan." - Eliel Saarinen
DESIGN | "Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content is not design, it's decoration." - Jeffery Zeldman
