"My main interest, value is the process of creation. Wanting to build something based on a single initial sketch has always seemed like a dubious desire. The design process is an evolutionary process. Design and then construction are therefore key stages in the job of architecture, if we are to make a relevant contribution to the society we live in. Development, within the meaning of a creation process lasting for an extended period, always contains moments of surprise. The unpredicted and the unexpected are always a part of the whole.
As architects we will only be able to continue making a relevant contribution to society if alongside the routine and expertise of our day-to-day work we also open ourselves up to fresh, new ideas and thinking.
The paths taken during the creative process will and should take us by surprise again and again."
