1. ON DESIGN
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but
2. ON ARCHITECTURE
I don't have regrets of being an architect. You are looking continuously - to the leaves of the trees, the shapes of the cars,to the structures of the city, to the patterns of textiles - to find the reasons behind the forms. That is very rewarding. If you extend a profession like that to the entire history, it allows you to travel through time.
3. ON URBANISM
We do not need to wait for someone else to make it. We build it when we choose how and where to live. We build it when we move a little bit closer. We build it when we choose to move a little slower. We build it by choosing to put aside our fear of the city and other people. We build it by pursuing it in our lives, and in so doing, pushing the city to change with us.
We build the happy city by living it.
