Mandelbrot said: “nomads by choice, pioneers by necessity”, in this condition of nomadic survival my home is inevitably my body. With all the logical results: “every philosophy must be portable” and “whatever you do not require will kill you” (respectively Paul Valery and an old Tuareg proverb). I often imagine myself walking, with my backpack of responsibilities, shedding possible individual tears in the downpour of common regret. I believe that intelligent environments can only spring from intelligent spheres, it’s not a problem of architecture, it’s the craft of Living.

A kodama (木霊, 木魂, 木魅, or 児玉) is a spirit from Japanese folklore, which is believed to live in certain trees (similar to the Dryad of Greek myth).

Cutting down a tree which houses a kodama is thought to bring misfortune, and such trees are often marked with shimenawa rope.
