Everything we build must be adjusted in relation to the ground, thus the horizon becomes an
important aspect of architecture (...). The simplest form of architecture is to cultivate the
surface of the earth, to make a platform. Then the horizon becomes the only direction
one has, and the moment a dialogue between the earth and the horizon
is established, one can start to consider it as a room.
The room is the beginning of architecture. It is the place of the mind. You in the room
with its dimensions, its structure, its light respond to its character, its spiritual aura,
recognizing that what ever the human proposes and makes becomes a life.
