Imagination vs. Reality

I did a project and all that remains of it is a beautiful image.
No thanks.

What interest me in this business is building, making dreams pass into reality...
It’s only interesting when you get the impression you’re actually making contribution.
Taking part in a certain idea of the evolution of cities and—philosophically—in creating a certain future.
What it boils down to is that I could never have been an architectural artist.
I mean someone who sees architecture as an artwork activity, like Piranesi.
The thing that interests me is seeing the images that i design pass into reality.
