I wanted to improve the suburban office building; to create a great urban space in a suburban environment with all that implies about interaction, collaboration and creativity.
Every building is a prototype. No two are alike.
Creativity has more to do with the elimination of the inessential than with inventing something new.
Transparency is not the same as looking straight through a building: it's not just a physical idea, it's also an intellectual one.
Most architects say: I want to use this type of glass, even if it's too reflective or doesn't let enough light in. However, the use of a certain type of glass might change the comfort level.
