“Designing is a matter of concentration. You go deep into what you want to do. It’s about intensive research, really. The concentration is warm and intimate and like the fire inside the earth-intense but not distorted. You can go to a place, really feel it in your heart. It’s actually a beautiful feeling.” – Petter Zumthor
