America has always imported history.
Every building is a prototype. No two are alike.
For me, though, the fun is over when I get the job.
I strive for an architecture from which nothing can be taken away.
In Europe, they're more demanding, the ones that rent the build ings.
We want our buildings to work like a machine that will create a pleasurable environment.
Higher ceilings allow the use indirect lighting, which is much healthier and reduces glare.
The American attitude towards efficiency and execution should always underlie architecture.
When I came to America in the '60s, it was the place to be. I wonder if I'd come here today.
We are creating a unique experience. It's starts with how you see the building from a distance.
