If it is true that "It is not easy to do something good, but it is extremely difficult to do something bad." as Charles Eames said, bearing this in mind, my need is to live an "easy" life, by being a part of every stage of a creating process ― from sketch to touch.
If we consider the architecture as the craft of spirit and earth, for the souls on earth, then, our architecture, architecture of our times and for our times, is the balance of stamina and mimicry, intertwining spirit and matter, experience and knowledge, skills and needs. Using the spirit as the material does not entail semantics. It implies a skill in shaping by intertwining. You can learn about dirt and peaople on it, but with the spirit you are born, and the spirit evolves in architecture, both in spatial and cultural dimensions. Using the spirit as material implies knowledge of all materials provided by the earth. Using light as a material, "without a trace in time", is less selfish than fantasizing about the archeological size and magnificence of our attainment. Attainments breathe with people in the spirit of the city. Attainmenta live until they fulfill their purposes. The monumentality of work, lies less in the matter, and it is rather more about energy that it brings, and that runs through it, channeled by skilled craftsmen. That is why the art of building, is much more than “just” art. It is, therefore, a craft, of the spirit and of the earth, for the soul of the earth.
