The Power of Architecture

I love this photo of the Oxford Union Library. What we build embodies what we truly value and this structure is a temple to books. In celebrating books, this room honors the knowledge gained and shared on the human journey. In celebrating our passage through the mysteries of life, this architecture points beyond its boundaries toward that which cannot be described. Pointing toward that which is beyond description, we rediscover the source of existence and the creative power of being and becoming. If we do not create places to honor these things we live in poverty. Imagining and building such inspired architecture, we discover who we truly are and what we can become.
