7. Pezo von Ellrichshausen, Chile

“[What we look for in architecture] is that it doesn’t simply function or that it simply is there, but that it has a presence and that it stimulates an intellectual construction about that presence. [We look for] that capacity of promoting questions.”

8. Ryan W. Kennihan, Ireland

“(…) structure is not simply the remit of the engineer, it is an opportunity to make an architecture with a character that speaks to us directly about the unchanging truth of the building. We are drawn to the experience of this truth and the potential for structure to impart a feeling of immediacy, timelessness and inevitability to our buildings and spaces.”
