“Wabi-sabi is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional.” —Leonard Koren


When embracing and appreciating Wabi Sabi, we are accepting a mood that is being evoked. Architecture has the ability to affect one’s experience in an emotional, meaningful and poetic way leaving a lasting impression.
