ARCHITECTURE OF OBJECTS

The making of functional objects can be thought of as an architecture in miniature, where the occupants are not people but hands, tea, or tools. It allows for a tactile interrelationship between the designer and the object that transcends what can be accomplished on paper or in the computer. Ultimately, the practice of architecture ought to permeate down to the level of these details within a building, considering carefully the shape of a doorknob or the weight of a cabinet door.
