Architecture ain’t easy. Architecture is hard. It’s trust–equal parts reason and guess.
It can be difficult, some might argue impossible, to really know what a building’s outcome will be. So we work to develop themes, understanding, function, and, most importantly, sense. We create a sense of what the building looks like, feels like.
Architecture and design of space are practices of dimensional translation. Of manifesting something that is beyond the human scale through means we can manipulate. Digital modalities augment our means, but our hands still make our homes.
Architecture needs art as much as it needs engineering. It is incomplete without people and imperfect with rigor. The city and its varied architectures sit at fragile crossroads of needs and desires, and down those roads we go.
