Last But Not Least

Thinking Contextually
Whatever you’re working on isn’t an end in itself; it’s always part of something bigger.

“Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context — a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan.”
— Eero Saarinen
