The shape of the water.

And we return with an exemplary constancy, always with hopes full of new purposes.

A true "recherche du temp perdu".

It is perhaps the fate of a profession, or rather the journey, of a life spent to find its own role in the world.

After years of study and work I am still looking to understand what is the "shape of water", the true soul of an architect.

Perhaps the constant and unique ability to get involved every day, full of amazement and wonder for small things.

A new dress to sew on yourself, a new look to face a last project.

Just as water takes the form of the container in which it is poured, so the architect transfigures into reality, letting himself be overwhelmed by the wave of his perceptions.

An escape route exists.

Paolo Bollati , 2005 - 2016
