I have no profound philosophy to share. If pushed for an answer, my philosophy flows from the tip of my drawing tools. This fluid approach to philosophy means I have no self-imposed framework, no rigid set of rules, but I do aspire to achieve excellence through my infinite creative mind to assist me in the interpretation of each next architectural project.
My creative mind is inspired by subtle intuition. The architectural design process is a discovery process. During each project, I clear my mind of preconception and free my mind from traditional boundaries so that my architectural designs are based upon the geometry which results in the desired abstraction.
However, architecture is designed for people and not just geometric abstraction. Therefore, I think of my function as that of an interpreter, receiving the uniqueness of my client in one language and translating that uniqueness it into another language, the language of organic architecture.
I arrange geometric forms, or parts, into relationships to promote clarity in each part while contributing to the unity of the whole structure.
Geometry gives all of us basic primal shapes and forms found in Nature. Organic architecture is naturally appealing, because of its subjective quality, which is sensed as a “feeling” (beauty, happiness, delight, harmony, love). By contrast, traditional architecture relies mostly on familiarity and memories.
The main theme, however, that runs through this manipulating and ordering process is the appropriateness, comfort, convenience, safety, and well being of the people using the space within. There is never a necessity to sacrifice any desirable attributes for each are the reasons for building.
The attraction of organic architecture resides in its spirit. We strive to create an uplifting environment that not only makes us conscious of its beauty, but unconsciously sensitive to its energy. Such a structure, because of its beauty and energy draws you back by its delightful promise.
Organic architecture can be further characterized as: spontaneous, personal, peaceful, cohesive, relaxed, and free flowing from a sense of site, harmoniously proportioned, a quality of function and beauty, sometimes extravagantly complex, in tune with nature, provocative, enriching.
Romantic Naturalism + Geometric Abstraction = Balance.
