CHRISTOPHER FAGAN STUDIO ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN
Architecture is a conversation.
Whether designing a private home, civic library, or town plan, design begins and ends with the client. With each project, I learn the most from those I work on behalf of: families, private developers, and the public. I love architecture because it is a human endeavor – we all participate in it.
The character of our environment affects us profoundly. Everyone knows good architecture. It makes us feel important, and reminds us of things greater than ourselves. Spaces form us.
I’m seeking the keys to elusive qualities like atmosphere and the “spirit of place”, so I can shape them through design. At the core of great architecture is a paradox. It embodies abstract order and symbolism, yet is grounded in our primal nature. A memorable space fits our proportions, rewards our senses, and calls to mind the shelter of a campfire, the mystery of a night forest – settings deeply rooted in our collective memory.
