goal in my creating process is that of reaching a multidimensional end result. I like the principle of controlled chaos: letting
the circumstances evolve into interesting compositions where I, as an executioner, am evaluating the final outcomes.
With my artwork, I seldom have a preconceived idea of what will be produced, but in architecture you usually have the ideas
of the client, the building codes and site specific considerations, and so on, to start with. I try to modify these conditions
to a unique functional, constructive and artistically form. The interpretation relies on my inner feeling. Sometimes I can be
inspired by conceptual ideas, such as with this house (see image). I saw a sculpture with interlaced parts on television, at a
time when I was intensely practicing yoga, which inspired me to sketch this house evolved from the ideas of knots — later
realizing that it also could express the idea of an advanced yoga position. It is all a symbiotic play.
To respond to the question concerning principles of architecture and painting, in my own personal case, I would explain it in
the following manner. There are two possible analyses: I - Technical Analysis and II - Instinctive Analysis
I. - Technical Analysis
It is evident to everyone that an architect, when designing a building, must respect certain fundamental rules such as “adapted
structures,” construction of adapted spatial volumes, adaptation of colors to the environment, and so forth. This strictly limits
the ability of the architect to express a different look.
II. Instinctive Analysis
An architect, when painting, is liberated from some of the constraints such as format, client expectations and colors.
