CHRISTOPHER FAGAN STUDIO ARCHITECTURE
Architecture is a conversation.
Whether creating 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.
Design is a continual process that began in prehistory. When tackling modern issues like energy efficiency, urban planning, and residential design, I first look to solutions with timeless value. There is great wisdom in what was built before fossil fuels and nanotechnology; each region of our planet discovered forms and materials to suit their unique climate. Over time, such practical elements took on symbolic value, and the practice of building became art. I strive to respect the human scale and local heritage in my work, and build upon historic knowledge.
The character of our environment affects us profoundly. Like music, everyone knows good architecture. It makes us feel important, and reminds us of things greater than ourselves. Spaces form us.
