There seems to be a secret in this building, an invitation. It is beauty calling us. A rare gift given by architecture and architects. I sometimes walk alone here late in the evening when the work is done and lights switched off, I like to make a tour around the building. The architects have envisioned everything so comprehensively – it seems that there are doors in front of us opening to countless issues and also into ourselves. The centre does not appear as a working space, it seems to be alive. I feel like home here, home of homes.
