“An important value for us is drawing together all of the various elements of architecture–materials, space, form, light, color–and producing a unified whole. We’re not at all interested in producing a collage. People’s lives are the collage and you don’t need a collage on top of a collage. You need to provide some sense of wholeness so the kaleidoscope can occur within it.”
