For me architecture is art, it is love and only then is it business. Is it an art that has social responsibilities because it determines the way in which individuals interact and feel alive; proud of their city and proud of their nation.
But in the world today we live in cities where almost the new architecture fails to express the local identity; a bland international style that forgets the soul.
This is intolerable because I believe that the real wealth of a country is its people. Therefore the architecture which I reclaim is principally the expression of this spirit, of this energy.
