I am often asked, and ask myself, what in the world brought me to architecture!
How did I get involved with building, since the path I chose was not that of someone wanting the security of a profession, but rather one who was engaged in the adventure of the arts, music, mathematics and the trajectories of ideas.
How does one bring these dimensions to the field of architecture which is resistant to change? Whole intellectual enterprises, from astrophysics to genetics, from economy to cybernetics have evolved to present a radically new picture of an emerging world. Yet architecture, framed by tradition and bound by convention, struggles to break-out into the contemporary.
