At the core of this work is the desire to introspect and build a critical architecture that is rooted in its physico-social context, and simultaneously at another level to transcend context towards the abstract-universal. We believe that the technology used must strive to express the poetic possibilities inherent in the nature of material and its construction. Refined detailing of the concept is thus critical to the expression of it.
