Building In Nature

The act of building can be brutal.
When I build on a site in nature that is totally unspoiled, it is a fight, and attack by our culture.
In this confrontation, I strive to make a building that will make people more aware of the beauty of the setting, and when looking at the building, a hope for a new consciousness to see the beauty there as well.

I think sometimes I have a deal with the climate,
The nature,
And the topography.
It is important to get a dialogue between nature and creative life.
It is curious to say it, but at the same times the dialogue between the past and the present also has to be manifested.
