Sensitivity, Creativity, Sustainability
"Envisioning sustainable buildings means entering into an intimate relationship with the climate and with the concept of place. We have to imagine buildings that have only a minimum of visible technology, and maximize instead the efficiency of form, as materials change to become an active part in the final result, silently performing a task, a function, and becoming part of a new circular economy. This process seems to me to be a step closer to the complexity of nature rather than to that of mechanical artifice such that buildings will possess a high degree of empathy, a creative empathy."
