is above all very fragile in its inception. It must be nurtured and
cultivated. The crunching iron shoes of public opinion can easily end
the journey. An oblivion of bureaucracy or insensitive word blasts can
crush its preliminary phases. The journey from the abstract requires
extraordinary commitment and belief. To realize an individual abstract
vision demands even more audacious desire. Twenty-four
times rejected, still we hope one more time be accepted. Amazingly we
build something! Inspiring strategies animate space and light endowed
with a vital program. Drawers of drawings of buildings unrealized give
way to a concrete vision. For some unknowing soul in the future,
architecture will spatially arouse, new feelings will be discovered.
The journey will begin anew."
