Space is a memory, discovery and inspiration. It is definitely not just a rational term defining functions. Space is perhaps most powerful aspect in architecture which can challenge our unconsciousness to our existence condition. Inspiring space can ask us questions: where you are? How you want to exist? So to create spaces which can provoke our curiosity and doubts is the most profound mission for architecture.
建造是实现建筑的最本质的手段。在此建筑不是抽象的，而是具体的和物质的。建造应当遵从自然的法则和秩序，而非依赖于技术实现的人的武断。有三个重要元素：1. 真实——一种品质，可以抗拒事物意义被错位和乱用。2. 清晰——表达结构性和材料的真实逻辑的愿望，尽管不能完全从视觉上体现；3. 此时此地——尊重我们当下所处的时间与空间所带来的“重”，建筑无论从环境或文化角度都属于特定的场地和背景，因此我们应当面对局限用创造性的态度去发现答案。
The construction is the essential means of realizing architecture. Thus, architecture is not just abstract but physical and material. The tectonics should obey an order following laws of nature, instead of arbitrariness relying on technologies. In this, there are three things important: 1. Authenticity----a quality which resists the dislocation of meaning. It reveals the essence of things; 2. Clarity----a desire of expression of true logic in structural and material although it may not be completely achieved visually; 3. Here and now—--a respect to “gravity” of our existence in sense of place and time. Architecture belongs to specific site and context in both environmental and cultural sense, we should work with limits and discover the solution with a creative mind.
Beauty is not dead. Also “beauty can not be created overnight” (kahn). Beauty is always there, waiting to be discovered by man, only the way of seeing beauty is transforming constantly. This is a belief in feelings, rather than thoughts. If thoughts are the shadows of our feelings — always darker, emptier, simpler (Nietzsche), then we should really be suspicious to the abusing power of any concepts in name of intellect. Beauty thus exists in silence.
Doing architecture, we are anticipating the future, but with our memory. Architecture is a dramatic meeting between past and future, while has to be realized by present means. Thus Architecture belongs to a time, but it can also go beyond its time. Architecture without style, without appearance, without metaphor, will last and present itself in spirit.
