Architecture with a sense of humanity at its core. Architecture which challenges ways of thinking, new ways of seeing the world, of inventing solutions. Architecture which provides for the well-being and dignity of each citizen on this fragile planet. Architecture as a way of engaging with people over time, the architect's intended and unintended legacies.
