About the Book

Architectural design is, even in its embryonic stage, a thought-condenser process. Most probably, we can not know these thoughts, but certainly could feel them! Pending from the intensity of the heat - our passion - of the distillation phase, from the patience and the precision of this translating act - from spirit to matter -, our design might acquire the most coveted quality, timelessness!
