"We only move into the 21st century on the foundation of things that have been established long, long ago."
"I wanted to work in stone. The idea of permanence was important to me. It was a puzzle to find the site that felt right to work in. And then once I found the site that felt right, having an idea that seemed to nestle into the site...I wanted to do something that was like a folly, like an architectural folly."
