I did not direct my life. I didn't design it. I never made decisions. Things always came up and made them for me. That's what life is.
I used to design for my body, which was flat-chested with big hips. That's why my clothes were tight on top with full skirts.
The typical project design time for a large company like IBM - and they keep track of this - is a little over four years.
I think a lot of times people design restaurants with flash in mind. I think you should design restaurants with function in mind. Make sure it's functional and works with what you're trying to accomplish. Design can come later.
I'd like to design something like a city or a museum. I want to do something hands on rather than just play golf which is the sport of the religious right.
