Architecture, like art, is tied to memory and place, perhaps more so because we actually live inside and around architecture, so it imprints on us more than we realize.
"Architecture is a kind of corporeal time machine where the past, the present, and the future are related architecturally through memory."
The works shown here are not necessarily designed by me, but rather represent a continuation of my thoughts about art. It was anathema during my architectural training to speak of such things as memory, symbol, analogy, desire, love, and even decay and destruction in relation to designing architecture. Yet those are exactly the things that matter. The Italian architect Aldo Rossi put it this way: "In order to be significant, architecture must be forgotten, or must present only an image for reference which subsequently becomes confounded with memories."
