On The Design Philosophy of JDS Architects
“Our projects are humanly designed, politically engaged, financially viable, and structurally realistic.”
On Scandinavian Design
“It has evolved in the past five years from a veneration of the simple and pure lines of the classics, to something more fluid through its involvement of multicultural issues, political presence, and opportunist productive methods. Its outcome has become something more eclectic and colorful, while the consistency of the classics is still oddly maintained, as if it was genetic.”
