It takes a deep, personal focus to carry an inspirational idea through a long creative process to a place when finally others can also experience that inspiration.
In my case inspiration usually has something to do with sunlight filling a room, a connection to nature, or discovering some simple beauty that both quiets the mind and soothes the soul.
If that beauty moves me, then it is my job as an architect to carry that moment through design, engineering, permitting and construction so that people coming to that space may also discover it and be moved.
That’s the little piece of art in architecture, and it’s why I love this work.
