If the starting point of
the atelier's vision of the world is the relationship that
ties people to their environment, as parts to the whole, then
it is senseless to divide working scales: a building is worth
Out of the "architecture of relationships"
(intended not to be a formal architecture but as it could
in a general sense be a "software architecture")
the atelier deducts a genuine unconcern for the formal aspect
of his buildings-cities. The atelier's natural instinct drives
it to respect people (who really are future inhabitants of
his buildings, not anyone walking in the street) at a level
that it refuses to impose its way of life by means of a closed
architecture. Even if this one could be inspired or artistic,
it would not be made by people living in it.
