Encountering all kinds of individuals.
All kinds of groups.
All kinds of things.
All kinds of environments.
All kinds of values.
Things we know, things we don't.
Architecture receptive to all of these is rare.
When it comes to the innumerable things of this world, the innumerable demands and challenges of this world, perhaps we need to interpret architecture more freely. Approach it more openly.
Freely as in relaxing more, being our natural selves.
The kind of freedom that allows us to conceive of so many more kinds of architecture, allowing us to make diverse choices naturally and comfortably.
Identifying the right structure for the location, flexibly, unbound by architectural conventions, each time seriously, yet simply.
Even when it comes to building a house, approaching the task in a more relaxed fashion, trusting your own senses, thinking in terms what is accessible within reach of you.
Approaching it as if you were putting together a garden, a little at a time.
Your favourite plants.
The shoe locker there,
the table, chairs, kitchen garden,
fridge, bike, washing machine,
stepping stones, cupboards.
And all the many other objects,
forming parts of a small garden.
