I thought everybody was doing things like I was.

The great thing about my father is that it wasn’t about study. It was about loving something.

It was an incredible way to grow up, because words that you’re taught—these definite things—you realize they sort of beautifully fall apart; that words are tenuous.

I wanted to be involved with the making of some kind of parallel world. I thought, there’s no reason to go to different parts of our world, because you can write them.

Writing, but a lot of classics, a lot of Greek and Latin. I then went to the University of Iowa, because Iowa was probably the first school in the United States that had something called a writers’ workshop.

You can stay home, stay in a little room, and imagine all these worlds. And I wanted to do that. Why did I want to do that, I’m not sure if I can tell.

Architecture is not about space but about time.

I was relatively shy, withdrawn. But I also was a kind of student. I thought if I studied hard, I should reveal the results of this in some way.

I started as a writer, in the mid- to late- 60s. I was writing poetry. I wasn't the only one who wanted things like this, but I wanted words to be closer to fact, I wanted words to almost try to be physical, you know?

When the studio formed, at the end of the 80s, I thought: I wanted to form a studio of people because I wanted to do architecture, yet I thought: I can't possibly do it alone, because I don't really know architecture. Though stuff throughout the 80s was architecturally oriented.

I always have books around.

Since I spend all day day working in the studiowith people, I depend on them but I welcome the time whenthere is nobody here except me. I can wonder around thestudio, brood and think alone.

I was really interested in the aerial photography from Enter the Void and how one could understand that conceptually as a POV, while in fact it’s more of an objective view of the city where the story takes place. So it’s an objective and subjective camera at the same time.

As was Irreversible from Enter the Void. I like the way you change the problem from one project to the next.

I tend to think of it in organic terms; I tend to think of it as a body. I think a lot of the decisions that are made in regards to duration and balance are about trying to describe an organism that has its own pulse and that has its own behavior.
