how leading a band is like running a company. "You have to know what all your people can do. The ones who need to be challenged, you give them challenges. The ones who need to be carried, you carry them. The ones you need to let go, you let them go. A leader has got to have a certain kindness but a certain meanness, too."
how technology has influenced his work. "As a practice, we've always recognized the value of new technologies—whether it's rapid prototyping or digital modeling—but it's important to remember that the computer is just another tool, like the pencil. Technology is a means, not an end. The ends are social and always have been."
