is a small piece of this human equation, but for those of us who practice it,
we believe in its potential to make a difference, to enlighten and to enrich the
human experience, to penetrate the barriers of misunderstanding and provide a
beautiful context for life's drama.
+ Not every person has the same kinds
of talents, so you discover what yours are and work with them. Don't try to be
me, or try to be Frank
Lloyd Wright, or try to be I M Pei. Try to be yourself. You have to understand
what drives people to build buildings.
+ I am obsessed with architecture.
It is true, I am restless, trying to find myself as an architect, and how best
to contribute in this world filled with contradiction, disparity, and inequality,
even passion and opportunity.
+ Take what comes your way. Do the best
with it. Be responsible as you can and something good will happen, and it has.
+ I know I draw without taking my pen off the page. I just keep going, and
that my drawings I think of them as scribbles. I don't think they mean anything
to anybody except to me, and then at the end of the day, the end of the project
they wheel out these little drawings and they're damn close to what the finished
building is and it's the drawing..
+ You have to build up a credibility
before the support comes to you.
+ I think my best skill as an architect
is the achievement of hand-to-eye coordination. I am able to transfer a sketch
into a model into the building.
