I like to read as wide as possible, not just because I enjoy it, but because I believe it develops a more sophisticated understanding of what it means to connect lines and design communities. Ultimately, the discipline of the architect is just that... as well as trying to be highly articulate so you can communicate ideas that don't always make sense at first pitch.
It seems the more you equip yourself with cultural, economic and psychological ideas, the more meaningful design choice and expression can be.
From my experience in the architectural and construction industry, I understand that it is imperative to safe-guard the interest of others - while pushing for the most contemporary innovations in process and realisation. This approach could successfully address our most current aspirations of sustainability and net-zero targets.
This thesis is based in a context of increasing monocultures, and a general growth of community isolation. The project explores how to integrate various communities together within the city-centre over a programmed time - while becoming a consistent resource for the city’s existing and transient residents.
Can we propose a new criterion for metropolitan architecture to further a resilience against colossal obsolescence?
