Grimshaw explains his personal philosophy of architecture, saying that if buildings are to be useful in the future, they have to be designed so that they are able to grow, change and adapt to future forces (inside & outside) coming upon them.

Statements for history by Kevin Roche( visu )

Kevin Roche discusses his work with Roche, Dinkeloo Associates. He explains that "architecture is a language between people, from age to age. It has a structure, form, syntax and style, and says something about our time, our culture, our preoccupations, our political society, our honesty and our sophistication. Architects have the peculair situation that while they think they are building buildings, they are in fact making statements for history, and if they thought about it in those terms, they might be a little more cautious, careful and thorough."
