First Light





For the most part, it is difficult to speak about architectural qualities, let alone those of our own works.  We maybe able to explain certain design decisions, what seem “right” or make sense.  But qualities – particularly ones that are worth mentioning – are better left to silence and solitude.  They reside in the same realm of memories and emotions whose essence is erased the moment they are affixed with words.

In point of fact, architecture as a living art is rarely about itself.  Its genuine qualities remain implicit; its truths are manifested only in time passed.  Therefore, architectural creation is also an act of subtracting, of yielding, of letting go, so that space may let in the first light of daybreak.
