Ponder, Debate, Learn, Love – no.2

Architecture is about people. That is my mantra.

So we should talk also about what makes us tick, about what to learn, how to learn. We should think and love to think about all that surrounds us. We should ponder, debate, talk and share in order to gain knowledge and insight into ourselves and society. And most importantly, we should love to know ourselves!

Every first Wednesday of the month I post 4 items that caught my eye, thought and/or hart.



 

SIMON SINEK

I love the words of Simon Sinek. He talks about people.


 

WE SHAPE BUILDINGS, BUT DO BUILDINGS REALLY SHAPE US?

We Shape Buildings, But Do Buildings Really Shape Us?

Everything shapes us! Or parents, our condition, our environment, our beliefs, our history, our encounters, our reactions, our houses, our cities, our neighbors.
We live our lives through our choices, however, many of these choices are a reaction to what we do not want. And that is good. We learn what we do want by knowing what we do not want. However, EVERYTHING influences us! And yes, I do subscribe to the idea that architecture make too little use of physiological, cultural and sociological tools.

Though I do not like all the details of this house, I am mesmerized by its style. I like the fluidity of the space and its clean clear spaces.
