|"Americans have always drawn architectural inspiration from foreign lands. The urge to bring the far near , as Gertrude Stein defined romanticism, remains a strong cultural trait. When midwestern farmers vacation in Ireland or Spain, and when many people seek ties to their ethnic roots, romanticism has a new value. As an architect interested in establishing psychological bonds between clients and their ethical expression, I consider romanticism to be of critical importance.
The principles of symmetry and asymmetry are of fundamental importance in interpreting order in design. Symmetry is most often associated with intellectual control or system, human dignity, monumentality and classical order; asymmetry with growth and change, and with the unpredictability and ambiguity that allows for multiple meanings. In my work I strive for complex integration of both principles."
