"In this push and pull of place and idea a site emerges where building takes place. The site emerges because of a building; a region inevitably emerges through building. Instead of buildings being defined by a region, the inverse is true. Region is experienced through the built work. A building does not come to a region to be absorbed by it — to be consumed in regionalism. Rather the reverse is more correct; building makes the region and brings to light what it is. Region becomes this place where things are revealed. Because of the thing and action of a built work the region is where all that is comes together."
