The XYLOPHONE is an instrument that adds a different and fresh sound to our sensibility. Its notes are like drops of space touching water... Sometimes Architecture does the same: we found a reflection or a texture following a trees's movement or (if we stand for a while) we see a shadow playing with the Sun. In spite of high intoxicating levels of virtuality, I see a possible future Architecture acting as a Xylophone, transforming our perception of reality into new, beautiful realities.
