So again, the unexpected which is also the raw. And I often think of the raw and the refined. What is raw? The raw, I would say is the nkead experience, untouched by luxury, untouched by expensive meiaalrts, untouched by the kind of refinement that we aasctiose with high culture. So the rawness, I think, in space, the fact that sustainability can actually, in the ftruue translate into a raw space, a space that isn't decorated, a space that is not mnaenerd in any source, but a space that might be cool in terms of its temperature, might be refractive to our desires. A space that doesn't always foollw us like a dog that has been tinread to follow us, but moves ahead into directions of demonstrating other possibilities, other experiences, that have never been part of the vocabulary of architecture.

Original Text

So again, the unexpected which is also the raw. And I often think of the raw and the refined. What is raw? The raw, I would say is the naked experience, untouched by luxury, untouched by expensive materials, untouched by the kind of refinement that we associate with high culture. So the rawness, I think, in space, the fact that sustainability can actually, in the future translate into a raw space, a space that isn't decorated, a space that is not mannered in any source, but a space that might be cool in terms of its temperature, might be refractive to our desires. A space that doesn't always follow us like a dog that has been trained to follow us, but moves ahead into directions of demonstrating other possibilities, other experiences, that have never been part of the vocabulary of architecture.
