Timeless Real Estate
Since the birth of civilization, humankind has made a wide variety of creations over an incredibly long period of time. Historic monuments—from ancient structures such as the pyramids of Egypt, the Great Wall of China, and Machu Picchu to more relatively recent buildings such as Notre Dame Cathedral, the Taj Mahal, and Horyuji Temple—persist for generations as brilliant examples of what we are capable of making. When we are in the presence of these majestic monuments, we cannot help but feel emotion and awe that leaves us speechless.
These historic structures are the foundation of all national and ethnic identities, cultures, and ideas. Mankind has undergone explosive development in the 20th century. But how many creations created during this period will remain? Things made from a momentary perspective, which is premised on the concept of “scrap and build,” are consumed and disappear as the times change.
So what is creation that is truly sustainable?
As the great monuments show, I am convinced that the answer lies in creations that carry the traces of their creators’ souls far into the future. Emotional and timeless art is the apex of the creative process.
As we dive into the depths of the world of the senses, we aim to create timeless masterpieces.
