Traditional and Ecological Architecture.
“The best buildings spring from their surroundings, both natural and cultural, and from the people who will occupy them. These buildings nurture the relationship between a particular people and place. My passion, and the purpose of my work, is to create harmonious buildings and to make the act of dwelling–both publicly and privately–more meaningful.
For me, traditional proportions, details, and crafts create this harmony among structure, inhabitants, and land. There is a tangible joy in shaping a local, living material with our own hands; this joy is rediscovered by later users of the space.”
