- Design doesn’t begin with a blank piece of paper, it begins with an open mind. Before we can draw it, sculpt it, or build it, we have to imagine it. Often times the one skill that can best communicate an idea is the one we take for granted… our ability to talk about it, to put it into words. In essence to script a persons interaction and response to the environment they are going to occupy. The description is not about physical space but the emotional and intellectual experience of being exists in the mind of the listener and it starts to take on a life of its own. Architecture isn’t just about buildings. It’s also about the interaction, the scripting of the peoples lives that unfolds both within these structures and in the environments they frame.
