THE PIN–UP QUOTE: OFFICE KGDVS
Nature is fundamental to our work. To us it’s always about the position of architecture in relation to the reality of the world, and to life. So in that sense architecture can perhaps be understood as an organizing device, and if there was no nature to organize… In fact some of our projects, even when they’re finished, would be nothing without nature. Today you seem to have all these gangs: there is the eco-architect, the organic architect, the diagrammatic architect, the computer architect, whereas in a way we just consider ourselves architects. We make very simple things, with very simple means, in part because we like them, but also partly because that’s what our ability is. Life is already more than complex enough!
