“The students’ difficulties in doing architecture will not go away no matter how much experience they will gain. The difficulty in imaging architecture is an intrinsic part of the architect’s work. It is a continuous process, in which the realized ideas are only stations on the road the architect has to pave himself in order to be able to move forward.” - Zvi Hecker
