“We sometimes talk about our practice as a chess game where we make/do something, and somebody responds to that move. Oftentimes we’re drawing in more collaborators than we might typically need, sometimes artists, sometimes other thinkers. For us, each project is about opening new horizons and looking at the work in new ways. I feel that is why we do what we do. And situating the work in the context of a larger set of ideas, making work that can measure up to that set of ideas beyond you, is hard to do. But part of the exchange is about testing if we’re getting there... if it’s resonating.” [from Stereografía Johnston].

“[...] it is about reading the context. I’ve seen architects putting all their ideas in their first small project. They get to do a bus stop and they try putting a grandiose grid… Understanding what you’re building is, what you can address with it and how to react to the context is important. Sometimes is about being submissive to the context, sometimes there’s no reason to read any genius loci and your building will become the context of future interventions. So, knowing when to assert and when to step back is more important than being dogmatically ‘all about context.’” [from Stereografía Lee].
