In any architecture, there is an equity between the pragmatic function and the symbolic function.
I don’t believe in morality in architecture.
I see architecture not as Gropius did, as a moral venture, as truth, but as invention, in the same way that poetry or music or painting is invention.
I have no requirements for a style of architecture.
If I have a style, I am not aware of it.
I don’t care what people call me, labels have the negative value of making smaller boundaries for people.
In designing hardware to be used every day, it was important to keep both the human aspects and the machine in mind. What looks good also often feels good.
It was always my goal to ‘up the ante’ on good design and rye devoted much of my career to this.
