Biggest architectural design influence?

_ Modern Spanish architects, and prior to that the Danish. Alvaro Aalto and Siza, Enric Mirelles, Jorn Utzon. All have drawn on the site and surroundings better than others. Like them my biggest influence is the site and the question it puts forward, where are we on the ground and where do we want to go with the design?
