“Architecture is an art that blends history, geography, science, anthropology, environment, and society. This art does not exist without people and their hopes, expectations and passions. It mirrors all these aspects. One must be able to listen, but immediately below the priority of listening is that of the architect, with her notion of consistency. Basically, good architecture does not exist without a good customer.”
