The multiplicity of ideas is what Im interested in.
Architecture is a negotiated art, and it's highly political, and if you want to make buildings, there is diplomacy required.
So I am totally aware that when I defend the autonomy of art I'm going counter to my own development. It's more an instinctive reaction, meant to protect the private aspect of the work, the part I am most interested in and which nowadays is at risk in our culture.
Architecture is a result of a process of asking questions and testing them and re-interrogating and changing in a repetitive way.
We're producing spaces that accommodate human activity. And what I'm interested in is not the styling of that, but the relationship of that as it enhances that activity. And that directly connects to ideas of city-making.
