Sometimes, I feel the past and the future pressing so hard on either side that there’s no room for the present at all.
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.
We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within.
The Brain by Olson Kundig Architects
The Brain is a 14,280 cubic-foot cinematic laboratory where the client, a filmmaker, can work out ideas. Physically, that neighborhood birthplace of invention, the garage, provides the conceptual model. The form is essentially a cast-in-place concrete box, intended to be a strong yet neutral background that provides complete flexibility to adapt the space at will. Inserted into the box along the north wall is a steel mezzanine. All interior structures are made using raw, hot-rolled steel sheets.
