I am an active member of Architecture for Humanity; and I suppose like 'a thousand others' who joined one of the now 80 chapters worldwide, I began with a foggy notion that I might have a chance to do some larger good...and certainly that altruistic opportunity does exist; but let's put those lofty goals aside for a minute and consider some of the more 'selfish' reasons to be involved.
Yesterday, as our founder Cameron Sinclair and Team headed to the White House for the 10th Annual… Continue

Regardless of the shapes, its physical forms continue to reflect its established precedents and behavioral patterns, which in turn are still most often governed by forces beyond its control. Existing still at the whim of… Continue

Smile, giggle, laugh out loud and then marvel at how this integration of design/think/media/strategy scores max points with a communication capsule that achieves ultimate audience attention as watchers collaborate by replicating and duplicating the message.

All this chatter about… Continue
