“Müller himself is a professional of proposals, not only for buildings, but also as concepts. He has been a strong voice for putting the architecture in the center of the debate. He has had no fear of exposing his ideas personally, and has worked to promote a joint of creativity to discuss all the extension that the architecture can be inserted nowadays. His intentions are clearly to go beyond the physical world and explore also the possibilities of interaction with the social area, the new technologies and with nature.”(Jaime Lerer,President of International Union of Architects).
