I feel motivated by the Curiosity to "Know", people, cultures, traditions, heritage, life styles; everything that attracts my sense of Sharing experiences. This is probably the main reason why I have been working in various places of the world. Being passionate to the Architectural sense of what you do and Design for the community, it needs always a cultural approach that is usually the Client way of thinking. In the case is not, our Role as Archiect is help them in create together the right vision, in the right place and right time. This is the ideal Team work with the client and internally within your company too. No hierarchies are relevant more than Trust. Success come from the trust of the people that you are working with. Share with everybody. Be exposed to all public Critics and answer everytime makes you grow, even after years and years of Experience.
