"… the concern here and the challenge is about public good. We do believe that the city is a big source for common public good. Actually, we try to look at the city as it was a short cut towards equality. So, when an institution like the Institute for Public Architecture recognizes the architectural practices trying to contribute to public good, it sends a big and powerful message for all the practitioners throughout the world that are trying to do the same.
