Honestly, I could define "architecture" all day long. And sometimes I do. Then my clients move into the "architecture," and the "architecture" begins to define them. It's like the circle of life, only with more angst.
We know, we know: All great architecture leaks. Please stop reminding us.
Actually, "interstitial" is one of my favorite words. It means "the space between." Tell me that's not awesome.
It must be from the unbearable lightness of beaming.
Here's a fun fact: Whenever an architect designs a building that conflicts with its surroundings, we call it "juxtaposition." This is a large word, and it will take you a few minutes to mentally process it. We do this mainly to distract you from the fact that our design doesn't fit with its surroundings. It buys us some time. Then we'll point out the "interstitial" space between our building and its surroundings. Eventually, you'll get bored and move on. So it's really a win-win.
"It's all part of the process." This is what I tell myself and my clients when they're unhappy with the first attempt at the design. "It's all part of the process." But this isn't really true. I just let the interns slap a design together. I'm actually seeing it for the first time today too. We'll keep working on it.
Are you looking at me? Good.
