The education of the architect

"The architect should be equipped with knowledge of many branches of study and varied kinds of learning, for it is by his judgement that all work done by the other arts is put to test. This knowledge is the child of practice and theory. Practice is the continuous and regular exercise of employment where manual work is done with any necessary material according to the design of a drawing. Theory, on the other hand, is the ability to demonstrate and explain the productions of dexterity on the principles of proportion.
It follows, therefore, that architects who have aimed at acquiring manual skill without scholarship have never been able to reach a position of authority to correspond to their pains, while those who relied only upon theories and scholarship were obviously hunting the shadow, not the substance."

Home sweet home

"As an architect I've always believed that what can make a domestic setting truly home is the infusion of a cultural dimension."

Trienal [Polo I]

A Eslovénia é um país que raramente vê as obras dos seus arquitectos circularem nos media nacionais da especialidade. No Pavilhão de Portugal era porém quem nos dava as boas vindas e nos convidava a entrar para a exposição países. Ficam algumas imagens de obras com um léxico de referências arquitectónicas ainda pouco exploradas em Portugal.
