Design + Spirituality

Architecture is not about form, it is about many other things. The light and the use, and the structure, and the shadow, the smell and so on. I think form is the easiest to control, it can be done at the end.

Perhaps I was drawn to a career in design because subconsciously I knew it was the process that most closely matches our journey here on earth. Where we turn ideas into things.

Stuart Wilde suggests we ask ourselves the following questions:

Are my circumstances designed to nurture me, do they support me, or am I at the mercy of circumstances?

If so, what am I going to do about it?   What is the level of struggle here?

For Example, does the home I live in take so much effort to maintain that I get out of it less than you put in?
