“All projects come with constraints and we should use our skill to turn these into opportunities…. If we do our job well then our buildings effortlessly explain themselves, allowing everyone to enjoy them on all levels. Most of our work designing and building projects is hidden; our reward is the visibility and activity that great buildings provide.
