Our vision

Cultural continuity is an inevitable necessity for architectural and urban practices. It is an assumed responsibility of the predecessors to bequeath to future generations. As well, it is an undertaking to address and hold a dialogue with the community. In the context of space, it addresses the interaction between man and his environment. Temporally the interaction takes place between the modern, the old and the ancient. Further, it is between incidental happenings and expectations. These combinations present the motivation for us to communicate and spread our vision.
