After almost forty years working, sometimes with
extremely intense periods, I have reached the conclusion that there is
still a lot to be learnt.
The three things, above all, stand out to me and have allowed me to further my career: listening to others, having the ability to represent ideas first on a piece of paper and acquiring the necessary intuition to amaze not only myself, but other people as well. In my opinion, it is not entirely essential for an architect, especially of a senior age, to master all the commands of the programmes and technology available today that seem to never end.
Whereas, to create spaces, volumes, pathways, therefore emotions, it is fundamental something much more rare; the insight, that one sprouts up if the seeds are inside us, that one with its own 'personality' which comes out by itself. Just to surprise us.
Afterwards, to carry out the idea, act our vocational education, experience and then sensitivity which conveys to the project its own autonomy: the architect forget himself to let 'talk' traditions, forms, functions, becoming only their interpreter.
