‘For the architect during the ‘first stage’ of design, it is necessary above all else to observe and listen. The design process is not simply the clapping of a solution onto a problem, like a snuffer on a candle, but it is the interaction of two agents in a process of discovery. Unless it is borne out of this dialogue, no work can ever achieve the status of architecture and it can only be a folly’
Colin StJohn Wilson
