The mind of an Architect

Friday, December 30, 2005

How has computer technology affectedyour design process?
It hasn't done a single thing.

Are there any colours you particularly like to work with?
White, black, shades of black and nature material colours.

Define the qualities of a good Architect?
The work shows that, others must judge.

What gets you in the right moodto design (eg. music, places, etc) ?
Fear, absolute silence, the place doesn't matter.
This quote was given to me after my lecture at Architalx, Portland Museum Of Art , Maine USA
"There is something inherently quiet about the place and the men who designed it. In explaining their philosophy about living and working in one place, Mr. Smith paraphrased a Zen Buddhist text saying he once heard in Japan:"The real master in the art of living makes little distinction between his art and his leisure,'"he said. "He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both"".
