Meditations on an Ideal Architecture
Someone once asked us what are ideal project would be, we answered that it would be a "block of marble with maybe a door in it... maybe." Of course we were being a bit facetious - but we decided we wanted to see what that would like look anyway. We don't like marble because it's ostentatious. We like it because heavy, solid, and beautiful materials like marble speak to the things we think make architecture special - the quality of craft, the handmade, and the sense of wonderment at the labor it takes to put a beautiful object in a place. It's a quality we think every project should embody and every person should have access to.
