Architecture and design infiltrate into every detail of our daily life. We consider architecture and architect not merely a profession, but a life style. When time allows, we interact with design studios in universities, go to see art exhibitions and movies, visit a built environment, etc. While getting familiar with the technical aspect of a project design, we form a habit of thinking about the origin of design. The most important thing for us is to find a way of living and thinking that leads to creativity.
