Designing is inventing
In our projects we look for the appropriate combination of programme and location, of logical simplicity and casual poetry. A good design is both spatial and tangible, comprehensible and surprising, grand and intimate, timeless and changeable. These are the inspiring features that beautiful cities and landscapes share.
The questions we are asked are generally formulated in the language of words and figures. The answers we give use the language of images. This field of tension between word and image is where we come up with our inventions. By sketching and talking, calculating and drawing, by study and dialogue we shed new light on the assignment. In a constantly changing but nevertheless pleasantly stubborn world, our designs must make innovation possible while being able to stand the test of time. In our view, the spatial plan always implies play with time: it lays down and creates scope for the unknown.
