• Form as the means to overcome scale distinctions: the project of the city as fundamental domain of architecture; working on the potential of relational values
  • Forms as an index, as the ultimate most concrete and reliable expression of everything influences the design process
  • Form in the meaning of the ancient Greek term εἶδος, from which “idea” originated: the inner conceptual core determining the exterior appearance of things
  • Exactness of form despite the pressing market economy requests for vagueness, for smoothness
  • Simple forms
  • The depth of the form. Visible form as the outermost layer of a subterranean, multifaceted process
  • Form as "what's left" when all the chattering about the design process is over
  • Form as a language
  • Working on the form as an act of responsibility
  • Form restriction to enable us perceiving small differences, to take back discerning the specific weight of things
