house : text

.

“In architecture, once you remove the skin — the “language” of walls, ceilings and slabs — all that remains is sheer space.”

.

“how does one design and build using emptiness as a construction material? How do we perceive space? And how does it affect us?”

.

“spatial relationships, repetition, reflection, sequence, transparency, tension, pacing, chronology… Any architectural question is answered from a literary point of view; any literary issue is addressed by a spatial idea.”

.

(I like this act of translation: building a house/structure to represent the feeling/essence of a text.)
