We hope you enjoy this retrospective of on the boards projects from January through December of 2018. In these spaces, ordinary things will occur. A moment to read. A deep breath. A breath-taking view. A soul can breathe. A heart discovers. Life is lived. Unobstructed.
Imagine someone reading. Contemplate a man
Oblivious to his settings, and then a distant person
Standing in an ordinary room, hemmed in by limitations,
Yet possessed by the illusion of an individual life
That blooms within its own mysterious enclosure,
In a solitary space in which the soul can breathe
And where the heart can stay—not by discovering it,
But by creating it, by giving it a self-sustaining
Atmosphere of depth, both in the architecture,
And in the unconstructed life that it contains.
