Architecture seeks to find harmony between pragmatics and poetics through phenomenological relationships of tectonics, placement, and culture. The choreography of these events, both physical and metaphysical,leads to a depth in the art of place making. The act of building in a certain way or attitude is read as aphorism - the statement imbedded in the physical existence of a construction is manifest in the way which its existence is made.

We (civilization) make both out of physical need and desire,the question in art is whether our motive is purely physical or becomes spiritual. How is institution achieved? What defines place and how is it made? Does tradition bind us to the past or is it the freedom to inform the present and beyond ?
