We borrow from nature the space upon which we build.

About advice I think there are two levels that should be talked about: First of all, on the global and social level, I think it’s important to advise young students—and future generations—that we live in a time when materials, resources, and food are going to be limited. With these limitations, we all have a big part to play in the profession and in our designs and to do work that recognizes the condition that we live in. In doing so, we have the ability to service—with intelligence—future generations.

And on the architectural level, I think my advice is that it’s very important for architecture to touch people and to have a role in inspiring them. And we have to do that with the means—which is the digital technology—we have in our hands. But at the same time, it is important to really touch people with the sensibilities that we have to perceive architecture, and to create architecture in a way that still has meaning for people. That’s what I think is important for young people to understand.
