"Collectively, we build to improve the quality of our own and other people’s lives - to provide shelter, warmth and amenity. But we also build within a cultural and social context which attributes value to built environments beyond pure functionality. Architecture is the overlap at the centre of this venn diagram between functionality and culture. When these constituent parts work in harmony – providing true amenity in dialogue with our culture – that’s when we have done our job well."
