Space Emergence or Space Emergency
I am an architect and in January I started limiting my work activity to 3 hours per day because I wanted to spend my time thinking about space instead of designing it. I have been thinking about space for 8 month now and I’ve understood why I love space more than building.

Buildings are objects and the act of building leads to such objects, but architecture is something else. It is the way we think and talk about buildings, how we represent them, how we build them. This is architecture."
