Architecture is, finally, a means of communication, a way to describe things for which words are inappropriate or inaccurate, and to speak about the culture from which it comes.  We take a point of view.  Our work concretizes the ephemerality of feeling.  It transcribes the complexities of the world and the fragmented, disbursed, and detached nature of existance.  Our interest in indeterminacy parallels our interest in formal language.  Our work reiterates the unfinished nature of things.  We hope it unmasks the deceptions of first appearance and explores what we don’t see.
