Architectural Concept: 8½ x 11. 11 × 17. A house of paper. Rods and shadows. There is hot stillness and Morning sun. Bring in a breeze. Turn Chaos into order. Use Walls that grow, binding, stacks, pages. Consider The shadow as duplicate. Living in “reams” with Light burning letters onto the page. Passing through the cool between 2 pages shadow painting. Messages and Language. A building as a book . . .with pages and memorable thoughts. Words of History or independence or conviction or new ideas formed in concrete. Don’t forget a bookmark and the same page over and over… Let the architectural form be the spirit… Engage. Receive and deliver countless messages and 1 bold idea. Repeat . . .
