The architectural language of Preston resembles the movement of calligraphy or a building of brush strokes. Envisioning Hokusai's "The Wave," the initial sketches were shaped like auburn ships. A wind blowing. A sea rising. Roof eaves spiraling back into themselves. A great wave crashing, only one of Hokusai's blues and white-silvers. The roof returns over our head like a solitude of barreled water.
