ICARCH asks to design a "house of mood", a house whose life is "submerged in the text", as his own work is. A house that refuses the heroics, or, to be more exact, the explicit, self-advertising forms of heroism, since there is with certainty a form of heroism in a doctor, like Chekhov, who treated the poor without charging them and who built public buildings for them, with his own money... and who refused to complain, despite the fact that he was seriously ill, of an illness that actually shortened his life significantly.
