Architecture is the people. It is made by people and for people. I can hardly see architecture as an abstract entity. Architecture changes with the society, follows it, and in some cases guides it. The challenge of architecture is to make our life better. Every day we live, see, breathe, touch and listen to architecture. I love when architecture is capable of surprising me, awakening unexpected sensations.

Living in walls.

Architecture is not about form, it is about many other things. The light and the use, and the structure, and the shadow, the smell and so on. I think form is the easiest to control, it can be done at the end.
