I am dedicated to the pursuit of creating architecture that inspires and provokes an emotional reaction. The relationship between ourselves and space must illicit a conflict of emotion and a confrontation of ideas. It is at this level of intimacy that a space can truly be experienced. The intensity of that moment instigates a heightened awareness and understanding of the environment.
Although paradoxical, it is important to understand that this intensity should not be finitely perceived as malicious or rancor. It is instead relating to the raw emotion personified in the struggle of conflict and confrontation. In many cases this can be manifested as amicable.
