Architecture must be present, not out of complacency, but out of responsibility towards space, needs and context. The context is constantly changing, the conditions and state are never the same, but the attitude must always be as persuasive and coherent. Architecture needs courage and a keen sense at the same time. It is a balancing act between self-confidence and responsibility.
