The individual and the collective

From my earliest days as an architect, I have been interested in the unresolved tension between the ever-changing process of dwelling and the finite condition of the architectural object that contains that process. Our buildings are meant to achieve a complete and final form, not to be left in a state of indeterminacy — but dwelling and the creation of community are open-ended processes. I found that I could maintain the tension between object and process if I imagined and designed residential buildings as spatial matrixes rather than closed formal systems.
