The software and the hardware
It is very important to understand that all these projects have two distinct periods: one that we call the “software” period, and the other that we call the “hardware” period. The software period is exactly the moment when the project exists in the drawings and in the minds of hundreds and thousands [of] people who try to stop us and in the minds of the hundreds and thousands [of] people who try to help us. In the software period there is no recipe [for] how we can do the project because, as I said before, we never do something in the same way. It is like an expedition in this very complicated process of making. But the software period is working only because we are directed towards the realization of objects. Very precise objects—a curtain in the valley, a running fence, a bridge that was wrapped, umbrellas, or surrounded islands. Basically, it is extremely directed. This is where our credibility is. If we would never have the process, we would never realize the object.
