Ep i‐log (ue):

I think about our time together in the Zone – the studio, the villa, the AA, the park, wherever it happened and I see your crazy speculations, I hear your ruminations. I didn’t realise that architectural behavior could be so entertaining, its product so thrilling. Really it had little to do with the documents; these were just an instruction to be free.

You made your own projects. Continued the evolution of the zone. Listened to music slowly. Being productive, you

NO GUARENTEE OF FAILURE – only of success............eventually.

FAILURE IS POTENTIAL SUCCESS
