Eric Berkson views architecture as the realization of a client’s aspirations in three distinct ways: cultural, environmental, and technical. Cultural aspirations are realized by taking the time to understand a client’s current operations, ethos, and goals to determine how these may be reinforced in a project. Environmental aspirations comprise minimization of a project’s impact within a framework of site, material, and system strategies reconciled with available resources. Technical aspirations are realized by the creation of details and documents that allow a contractor to effectively and efficiently execute a client’s vision. It is the pursuit of projects combining all three of these aspirations, which inspires him.
