“there was a time when I experienced architecture without thinking about it. sometimes I can almost feel a particular door handle in my hand, a piece of metal shaped like the back of a spoon. i used to take hold of it when I went into my aunt’s garden. that door handle still seems to me like a special sign of entry into a world of different moods and smells. i remember the sound of the gravel under my feet, the soft gleam of the waxed oak staircase, i can hear the heavy front door closing behind me as i walk along the dark corridor and enter the kitchen, the only really brightly lit room in the house.” peter zumthor
“if i were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say: the house shelters daydreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace” gaston bachelard
i don’t have fun. actually, i had fun once. in 1962. i drank a whole bottle of robitussin cough medicine and went in the back of a 1961 powder-blue lincoln continental to a james brown concert with some mexican friends of mine. i haven’t had fun since. it’s not a word i like. it’s like volkswagens or bell-bottoms, or patchouli oil or bean sprouts. it rubs me up the wrong way. i might go out and have an educational and entertaining evening, but i don’t have fun.” tom waits
