Buildings have defined cultures for generations. They serve as mechanisms to describe and mold personal identity, acting as mirrors of the zeitgeist. As time progressed buildings have become less flamboyant with cleaner lines, lacking ornamentation, echoing the cultural dislocation of the age. Reflective of the movement to virtual social networks and ways of working, the shift to an increasingly bound environment determines the fabric of our commercial and domestic infrastructure. Capturing that social evolution, the transition of the plane, the tactility of the surface, as mass intrudes spatial energy, from the whimsical to the functional; structures transform the ephemeral into the tangible three-dimension object.
Analogous to other spheres of the visual world, form and content play a dance of harmony and discord. This means of self-expression, ranging from the Baroque to the Zen, is viewed through the medium of positive and negative space, exemplified by the transitional edge, from the thing to the no-thing, the balance between the yin and the yang. These ultimately transient personal sanctuaries, offer a barometric gauge of interactions amongst humanity. As our lives become ever more virtually interconnected, our buildings become more homogeneously soullessly disconnected.
