ARCHITECTURE BY REDUCTION
The architecture I tend towards to is both discreet and active. Discreet, through a simplicity that should make it obvious. Active, because this evidence is first of all at the service of enhancing its context.
That is my aim. And the means I use to achieve it are chosen for their elementary character: geometry, spatial proportions, distribution of light and precision in details. The objective being, in this work of abstraction, to reduce the space to a minimal expression where any arbitrary sign is removed.
Thus, the seeked simplicity is achieved thanks to an economy of means and a very direct understanding of the idea that motivated a project. Architecture is for me like a composition and an interaction of elements which constitute a unit in a perfect balance.
From this perspective, the unit I am talking about is therefore not made up of different parts, but literally sculpted. And if I see architecture as a sculpture, it is because I am intimately convinced that if it is able to recognize these tools of composition as a unit and, therefore, to appropriate space, the human being will then find harmony.
An architectural beauty of this type, never disjointed from the reality of the place, will transcend time.
This is my dream.
And this dream is my conviction.
