Let’s make 2022 our way
under- »among, in the presence of« (Old English)1
stand- »to exist, be present« (attested from c. 1300)1
There is a thin line between copying a style and creating one- thin, yet clear and profound.
The line divides evolving from the existing knowledge and prospering from stagnating and merely repeating some existing patterns without understanding reasons behind them.
It is a difference between drafting a house and creating a home.
In forming architecture (if not in just about anything else in life) we must then always pursue to understand, or »to be among the presence of present«– with our mind, hand and heart. In so we can grow and evolve and more, much more than this, we can do it our way.
“Understanding so, is that bridge across the thin line.
To find it takes time, skill and utmost the will-
the wish, the drive to understand
to be understood
to find the same path and walk it to the finish line
