MANIFESTO: Architectese

I reject the academic bleating that form has to be visible, conceptual, impractical, and fairly hideous to be relevant. While architects were sleeping, the invisible zone of the section has become complex, fascinating, and beautiful, a multifarious matrixed border enabling environments of our own imagining…

MANIFESTO: English

I see climate  change as an exciting design challenge. Just the operation of our buildings alone is responsible for almost half of our  electricity consumption and consequently a huge chunk of our carbon footprint. Reducing heating and cooling loads is largely the job of the building envelope and therefore in the realm of the architect. That means those of us involved in architectural design have the opportunity to be a big part of the solution to the pre-eminent problem of our times just by designing awesome building envelopes…
