Its very important to understand that we never do the same thing twice; each of our projects is unique. Well never do another Gates. Each project is a unique image. We do not know in advance how the work will look. I do preparatory drawings, but they are only projections of our vision.
Sometimes, I tell my wife I have to take a car trip and collect new memories - I like to drive around at absolute random for weeks on end through the United States and parts of Canada. Or else I feel trapped, like you feel when your life is completely planned for months in advance, and you think youre not getting enough oxygen.
