When I was a kid my father didn’t really have much hope for me. He thought I was a dreamer he didn’t think I would amount to anything. My mother also.
For me every day is a new thing. I approach each project with a new insecurity almost like the first project I ever did. And I get the sweats. I go in and start working I’m not sure where I’m going. If I knew where I was going I wouldn’t do it.
Architecture should speak of its time and place but yearn for timelessness.
Liquid architecture. It’s like jazz – you improvise you work together you play off each other you make something they make something. And I think it’s a way of – for me it’s a way of trying to understand the city and what might happen in the city.
Look architecture has a lot of places to hide behind a lot of excuses. ‘The client made me do this.’ ‘The city made me do this.’ ‘Oh the budget.’ I don’t believe that anymore.
