“My first year at the Cooper Union in New York was a foundational year. After that, you can either be an artist or an architect. I remember sitting with my mother in the Bronx in our housing complex and saying, ‘I don’t think I’m going to do architecture. I’m going to do art because it’s more enjoyable.’ She worked in the sweatshops. She said to me, ‘If you’re going to be an artist, you’re going to be poor. You should be an architect because you can always be an artist in architecture, but you cannot be an architect in art.’”
