"Most people live in architecture. For me, architecture is more than a lifestyle. It is a passion, and I live it. To actively live architecture is to dare to imagine worlds beyond the norm and to find ways of translating them into concrete palpable form. In the words of William Arthur Ward , 'If you can imagine it, you can create it.' Moving continuously between the thresholds of imagination and creation, between the virtual and the real, is what living architecture is all about. I teach it, I research it in the Cornell CAVE (Computer-assisted Virtual Environment), and I practice it."
