Byung Kil Bae

My architecture is concerned with the fundamental perception of the interrelationship between nature, human-being and architecture and the architect's architectural behavior in search of ways of coexistence through the right relationship between nature and human-being.

The architect thinks that respect and consideration for nature, which is the background of human life and architecture, is necessary, so I developed into aesthetics the meaning of Yum Chi(廉恥)", which is human ethics and takes it as my architectural attitude.A ancient famous Chinese scholar, Mang-Ja(孟子) said about “Yum Chi (廉恥)“ in his speech, "Man must be ashamed; only when he is ashamed of being free of shame does he have nothing to be ashamed of.”

"Aesthetics of Yum Chi(廉恥)" is a part of the architectural spirit, which states that in the relationship between human and nature, in the relationship between human and things, all things and human must be conscious that they are interactive with each other-dependence, so that they should "go beyond relationship to ethics.“

I understand that it is ultimately for human beings that architects care about nature, and I practice architecture based on the perception that there are "no boundaries" and “not a one thing, and it is not two“ to each other in nature, human-being and architecture.

Andrea Cruzalegui

My architectural focus is born from the sensations generated by a space. Whether open or closed, the interior and exterior factors are ordered and controlled by the design generating a particular atmosphere. The architecture must transmit something, and that something is decided by the architect, when it is relevant and well executed it becomes a great design.

I am pretty clear what architecture means to me, and after 50 years of being in this profession on three continents, I will not change my mind. There are great architects out there, and I just hope they see clearly the development of our profession. It is not about YOU anymore, it is about the survival of our planet. Please take this seriously!

Architecture is an emotional experience.

When artificial intelligence is used to build superstructures, then the human input can only be done by designers with great imagination and vision. High-Tech is terrific if it is applied to social benefit. We forget so quickly that everything we make, including artificial intelligence, comes from the raw materials of this planet.

I can see that people are fascinated by monstrous shiny skyscrapers, but the reality is, that this is nothing more than modern human anthills. Who wants to live there with thousands of others?

We should integrate the beauty of Nature harmoniously into our architecture. The grand design of Nature (mountains, valleys, meadows, lakes, streams, oceans shores) gives us enough inspiration to follow the idea to compliment Nature, instead of destroying it.
