Architecture is first about building, and then about life. Both of these processes are messy and imperfect. Architecture is not a pure or perfect aesthetic art.
The creative process distils a design down to a simple, economical and robust form. Building the design makes a base platform that only comes to life through use and activity.
Efficiency is implicit in good design, reducing the embodied energy of a building’s materials and construction, by working with what is already there and doing the most with the least.
Loose fit and open ended is not only an approach for inhabitation and use, but also for the long, flexible life of the building and the reuse of its materials.
Architecture should exploit the passive, operational energy opportunities of a site and its climate, but also reveal and help us experience place, time, nature and humanity.
Architecture has qualities that are vital and visceral. Architecture can make us feel alive.
