hit counter code
Matthew Solomon

To create an architecture, but not a building.
To make a drawing, but not a detail.
To design space, but without a site.

To ignore the reality of construction, and to embrace the concept of imagination.
To remove the shackles of limitation, and to think innately about space.
To alter the perception of space, and to oppose the conception of it.
To distort the notion of antiquation, and to devise the unexpected.
To seek out curiosities, and to welcome discoveries.

To execute through drawing, though, uninterested in fabrication.
To challenge technical practices, by innovating with unconventional projection.
To explore through space, though, not necessarily literal.
To discharge the crutches of explanation, by allowing work to support itself.
To make art, through making architecture.

To form a semiotic analysis, influenced by the theory of Deconstruction.
To push formal qualities, derived from the sense of aesthetics.
To merge boundaries, losing sight of legibility.
To exercise manipulation, creating the avant-garde.
To break existence, making the autonomous.

To question the legitimacy of designing to build.
To understand how to think analogously.
To embody the mind of an architect, the deviser, maker, or creator of anything.
