Fuksas speaks out against strategy based architecture, he believes that each project should be a reflection of the architect’s emotions, hence should never be the same. It should be about the inspirations and emotions of the architect that drives the design process.

"I think emotion is much more stronger than strategy."
"Design is a piece of love. When you start to make design, doing, you start giving something from you to others."
"Each project is different. Each idea is different. Why, because my emotions change every day or month, 100 times. You need this to live."
