At the heart of architecture is curiosity. An enduring interest in what’s behind the structures and spaces of cities, neighborhoods, and villages. An unshakeable awareness of not only the design or technology of our building and communities, but also how they mirror philosophy and politics. And, ultimately, an abiding intrigue into how each place and space faces the challenge of persistence and relevance as the ideas, modes, and people change around them.
