First, Jonathan Swift, autor of Gulliver´s Travels said “A wise person should have money in their head, but not in their heart”. I ignored him, because my first payment is in the bank but inside my body and soul. I am happy, every fifteen days the company will pay. It is a wonderful feeling.

Second, although the most important thing is the work that the company entrust me. They give me the freedom to design and to give my architectural vision. This is even better feeling than the previous one. Then I´m very happy I´m working in my company GF55 Architects. I´m going to quote a famous Spanish, Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) “Everything you can imagine is real”. For now it is being.

Moreover, sense of humor is very important, almost basic for the life. As “the father of advertising” said, “The best ideas come as jokes. Make your thinking as funny as possible” (David M. Ogilvy, England 1911-1999). In other words, I try to live with joy, good mood and all this despite the fact work is logically hard, rather absorbent. But very satisfying and grateful.

Finally, and as you know, designers and architects are partially artist or even totally artists, so I continue to visit museums. This time it was the turn of the Bowery New Museum of Contemporary Art that I especially liked the exhibit of Marta Minujín on the third floor. I liked that much that I became a member of this Museum for one year for 55$.
As I am a bit of a joker today, let me transcribe the following quote “I don´t necessarily agree with everything I say”. It was written by Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980).

And as lastly I dismissed talking about the future, until next post, we remember genius Albert Einstein. He said “I never think of the future, it comes soon enough”.

So see you, or better read, in the next post.

All the best,


Alicia Buades
