“Energy as potency.
Energy is entropy. Activation of forces and efforts. Vehiclisation of (new) bits of information. Of interest are those processes, phenomena or situations capble of producing – or introducing – positive energy within the system. Energy as open – non disciplined – (re) information rather than as linear progress. Energy as catalysation (and fuelling) of potentials. Actions or constructions, manifestations or trajectories. Impulses: stimuli and triggers. Always reactivations – and propulsions – of environment.
Energy as an impulse.
Places have energy of their own, built up throughout their history by physical or spiritual phenomena. Any human action should amplify the energy of a place: they should be on the same wavelength. Any work of architecture should amplify the conditions of a place, given the place energy, never detract from it.”
