Design Philosophy:

 

In the design of a building I generally try to follow two principals that eventually lead to the building’s shape: The first is the different parts of the building must be seen and understood as their function, for instance a cinema must be easily identified as such. Likewise are foyers, living rooms, bedrooms, passage ways, etc. In observing nature, we find nothing useless in a flower, a tree, or even much simpler objects like rocks, every aspect of these objects has a reason for being so.

The second principal that I try to exercise is to insinuate to the viewers/users of the building, of what is coming next; I try to insinuate of those angles which they are not present at, at the moment, without boring them.

If to assimilate this principal to the world of music: then I try to maintain a main rhythm and melody, so that the listener assumes how the next section would sound like, yet they are pleasantly surprised to discover that it is a little different than what they expected, yet still within the main rhythm and melody. I try to exercise those two principals in a logical way of induction and deduction, but they are actually an implementation of a dream/fantasy of mine about the building of which its source is not to be found in the world of logic or reason.
