Richard Foqué: imagination & reality

“The architect work in the field of tension between imagination and reality.  The architect’s task is to convert the dreams and often the unreachable wishes of the client into a buildable concept, which should be functional, technically resolved, and in compliance with all building and safety codes, but at the same time must inspire a sense of wellbeing and have the necessary aesthetic qualities to contribute to and enrich its context. ”

[from Richard Foqué, Building knowledge in architecture, UPA, 2010]
