To me 100% is not a goal, but rather a good start.
No matter context, I engage fully and thus notice needs and gaps often forgotten or ignored. Being an Architect goes beyond drawing and formulating the building. It is a longterm investment in social structures, personal experiences, collective strengths and of course economical incentives. It is a chance of possibilities we cannot afford to over waste.
With that said I am not a fan of rules. The World changes faster than ever, and regardless of which report you read it can only give you one guarantee: the future will continue to accelerate. In my eyes this is an exciting reality which poses endless opportunities. With the increasing pace, the complexity of our societies naturally grows as well and asks for projects corresponding to this constantly changing reality. The only way to do to this is to foster a future approach of seamless trans-disciplinary solutions. What happens in this position is that it allows for a more comprehensible response which is not only adaptive and responsive, but reflecting the multilayered – and in relation to the future unknown – usage of the structure. Hence, it creates a response of the correlate – longevity, high quality, durability and sustainability.
This is my approach, this is my position. I was born like this and I have fostered it as a student, professional athlete, friend and colleague. It is irrelevant if I would be standing on the starting block waiting for the starting signal to go off or if I would be at the studio or talking to a client. I am there to address the needs and possibilities, to go further than ever imagined and to leave with a positive impact. With this approach, 100% cannot be a goal, it would be a loss before you have even started. We need to reach much further, somewhere we cannot yet imagine.
