The architect must be able to utilize many

tools to relate research discoveries and

relevant points, to help her see the world

around her, explore its meanings, signify

its value, and critically engage its contents.

“I gave myself an assignment: to draw a picture that demonstrates light. Now if you give yourself such an assignment, the first thing you do is escape somewhere, because it is impossible to do. You say that the white piece of paper is the illustration; what else is there to do? But when I put a stroke of ink on the paper, I realized that the black was where the light was not, and then I could really make a drawing, because I could be discerning as to where the light was not, which was where I put the black. Then the picture became absolutely luminous.� -- Louis I. Kahn, Between Silence and Light: Spirit in the Architecture of Louis Kahn

To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.” --Henri Cartier-Bresson, The Mind’s Eye: Writings on Photography and Photographers
