"i believe that architecture today needs to reflect on the task and the possibilities which are inherently its own. architecture is not a vehicle or a symbol for things that do not belong to its essence. in a society that celebrates the inessential, architecture can put a resistance, counteract the waste of forms and meanings, and speak its own language. i believe that the language of architecture is not a question of a specific style. every building is build for a specific use in a specific place and for a specific society. my buildings try to answer the question that emerge from these simple facts as precisely and critically as they can."
