Our home is the extension of our self throughout space, the universe. The images which cause the birth of our feelings are rooting within our subconscious and our biological history. With this realization, the architectural work is never a product of spontaneity but a derivation of deeper tensions, conflicts and efforts occurring inside of us.
These conflicts and tensions are imprinted with the sequential penetration of one mass inside another and their reappearance with a new form and different materials. The transition from the orthonormal carving and the traditional materials to an organic form with modern materials, documents the historical experiences. Therefore, the eye – the organ of distance and separation – imprints, controls and investigates, whereas touch – the sense of nearness, intimacy and affection – approaches and caresses.
