Architecture reflects us creatively, technologically, politically, socially–it represents our common values. Personally, I am motivated by beauty, the aspiration of improving the places we inhabit, and the opportunity to inspire the next generation of thinkers. There is nothing more exciting than imagining a space and then walking through its construction.
