'Architecture' is the name we give to all the physical and mental feelings we have for being in a man-made place.
Nevertheless architecture is an art which expresses itself through the practice of building. We say 'architecture' when a building moves our emotions: we feel touched and impressed. For this reason it's not form or the daring of the architectural work that engage us more, but the ability of architecture to create a place with a strong identity, to house our lives in beauty, in the most proper and most apt atmosphere for our gestures. This is the aim of architecture and In this way architecture is the art of life. A complete art (not just visual) that expresses itself through light, forms and materials reinforcing our deepest feelings and gestures and giving them a home. An art which enhances our awareness of the present moment and of our actions.
