The Considered Life

“A considered Life, as opposed to a merely reasonable one, does not take anyone else’s opinion into account and relies solely on you.  Which is why, even in my practice, I was never all that interested in architecture as a collection of lines and objects, my reaction to the nonsensical argument that “he with the most toys wins” but instead was captivated by the stories they can tell, alone or together, by how they can enrich the human experience.  Design-at-large, I will submit, is not about technique, style, decoration or even innovation but existence at large, about finding yourself within a context that inspires you to do things that only you can think of, to live an interesting life which may, in turn, lead to interesting architecture. “
