"Heidegger trusted human beings more than the proponents of Modernism did. To him we human types are manifest, warts and all; we revel in untidiness. Dwelling is not about living in a house; for us dwelling is a verb and the centre of everything we do. To dwell is not static - it is on the move and even when it stops its journey it is rarely still. It is there before we journey and there when we arrive, it is not place-specific. A good home is where we make it, it is where we lie."
