Slide-2

Ars longa, Vita brevis: “Art is long, life is short”

I started writing this book long before I actually started writing it. The experience of putting it together in its current form has been a fluid, emotional, and educational exercise in life, love, work, and architecture, providing a tool of growth for me. It has encouraged the exploration of a lifetime full of great experiences, and discoveries. Everything with a beginning has an end, and another end, and another. The design process is never-ending as long as one continues to discover and transform every day. The changes may be un-noticeable most of the time but are cumulative. (…) I cherish the moments I spend in my studio designing and drawing, making the simplest and the most complex works of design. In my mind there is no difference.

There is a timeline in this book that attempts to define a sequence of events but in reality I believe I am working on a lifetime project and that each experience is just another piece of a puzzle which leads me to the next. Ars longa, Vita brevis:“Art is long, life is short” (Hippocrates) gives meaning to this claim. (…)

I believe in architecture as a part of everyday LIFE, and that the work of architecture reflects our needs, our desires, and our ability to improve the quality of our relationships with creativity and adventure. The work you see in this collection should convey those beliefs.
