Architecture is a fascinating journey toward the unexpected.  It is a ride, a physical ride and an intellectual ride.  I like to think about machines and technology in relation to landscape and architecture.  The idea of a motorcycle in the landscape confirms a kind of closure for me, a technological, experiential closure.

When I was a student at Columbia University I became very involved in dance and with the body in space through the work of Jennifer Masley, Merce Cunningham, Yvonne Ranier and, later, Anna Halprin.  This influenced my work profoundly.   I think of my buildings as processional events, as choreographic events; they are an accumulation of vantage points both perceptual and experiential.  At the Mandell Weiss Forum one comes though a eucalyptus grove and there, in a clearing, stands a two hundred and seventy foot long mirror.  One is suddenly part of an expectant crowd, a building of tension that has to do with the arrival of the audience and the anticipated arrival of the performers.  It is a ritual - the encounter with this giant mirror, the collective straightening of the tie, and the passage through the looking glass to what lies beyond.

The Nelson Fine Arts Center seems initially to be a single event, but it is actually a processional route that is open-ended.  Visitors can create their own paths to unexpected destinations that provide respite from the sun while, simultaneously, a celebration of the sun.  The building offers an array of sensory possibilities throughout the day and the night.  Its nocturnal life is very different from its sun-drenched daytime life.
