Harmony of form and space is a continuous passion of mine. Form can be a structure, house, tree, and/or an inorganic object. Space is the expanse, or counter point, which surrounds, which is in between, and which stages forms. It does matter how forms fit into space. Forms impact space. Both forms and space need to be carefully designed.
I have developed an acute awareness of how people react to form and space. Well-designed forms and space will evoke emotions. Depending on the desired effect, excellent design will create a feeling of excitement, calmness, meditation or any number of other emotions. As an architect, I want the person sitting in the chapel to have a feeling of spiritual contemplation without knowing why; without turning and pointing to objects and say “That makes me feel…”. Likewise, as a landscape architect, I want a person to have a feeling of harmony between the architecture and the landscape which they are engaging. The successful design will evoke the emotion without the participant knowing why.
Thus, my love for the two professions I have pursued: Architecture and Landscape Architecture.
