goldsworthy - heaven

Space -

I am very sensitive to space and, therefore, often struggle with cities where I can, at times, feel too confined. I need to know that water is near, a park, a place to view a wider sky. I definitely feel the principles of feng shui, can know when something feels safe, nurturing, just right.

It sounds like this new piece of architecture by Toyo Ito addresses human concerns on enclosure and crowding in an expansive and comforting way.
