In my own experience as an architect, I was more a manager than an artist with far too little time for the creative work. I felt restrained by mountains of paperwork and never ending discussions with clients and contractors. Forced into the role of the coordinator of fast ideas, I gradually realized that I would never have the time to shape my own ideas on architecture. I had to make more concessions than I was willing to.
Archibald reflects my own vision on architecture. He is the would-be architect in me and is the only architect I ever want to be… " to find out more...

Pritzkerprize is something like Oscar awards in the movie stream. In architecture, Pritzkerprize is the 'Oscar'.

Architecture is a very satisfying career.
The tasks you are involved are basically relative to the process of building. Even drafting is the pre action stage of construction work. Do you really work for what you like?
Do people really works for passion?
Is work, work?
I created a blog of a salary survey and a One Billion dollar blog today!

- The majority of our projects are questioning boundaries between spatio-political realms such as the public and the private spheres. - We are developing strategies that formally and programmatically unify disparate elements into a coherent whole.
- Configuring space and activities elastically we derive at forms that are fine-tuned around specific requirements and express the multiple aspects that informed them.
- We use physical space and ephemeral events as emancipatory and interactively acting tools: these do not depend on [exclusive] linguistic, cultural or intellectual readings but can be experienced and interpreted individually as pure physical and phenomenological experience."  to find out more...
"Transformative tectonics set spaces, planes and bodies into unforeseen relationships that challenge conventional topographies and spatial codes. While the angular and complex qualities of their forms might superficially affiliate them with 'computer-generated' architecture, decision-making is never relinquished to the computer." to find out more...
"Material as Form - Likewise, these projects occupy a zone far beyond the debates about truth or presence of materials and structure. They are produced at a time when material sciences are developing techniques not only to produce wholly synthetic materials and nanotechnological structures, but are also beginning to seamlessly fuse steel with rubber at a molecular level, creating entirely new - not even hybrid - materialities. There is no truth to material as the new ontology of matter are essentially informational, defined by transformation and error rates. Blue Architecture's use of material perhaps best exemplifies this approach to matter. Here "brick" as material is stripped of its laden materiality and pseudo-ontology and treated as a texture bump map applicable to any surface or form. The questions are no longer what "a brick wants to be" nor illusionist tricks but what effects can be actualized through material manipulation and recombination."  to find out more...

The practice is recognised worldwide for consistently challenging traditional preconceptions of space and demonstrating environmental concern and efficiency, without the need to compromise on contemporary form. Research is a vital ingredient for the practice and a balance between experimental and real projects is kept in order to remain at the cutting-edge of the field." to find out more...
