It is essential to an architect to know how to see: I mean to see in such a way that the vision is not overpowered by rational analysis.
My house is my refuge, an emotional piece of architecture, not a cold piece of convenience.
Architecture is a art when one consciously or unconsciously creates aesthetic emotion in the atmosphere and when this environment produces well being.
A garden must combine the poetic and the mysterious with a feeling of serenity and joy.
I don't divide architecture, landscape and gardening; to me they are one.
I think that the ideal space must contain elements of magic, serenity, sorcery and mystery.
