Architecture | Engineering | Ecology
I was fortunate to have taken a course taught by Brook Muller, a professor of at the University of Oregon. Titled, "Re-thinking Architecture", students were encouraged to analyze contemporary architecture culture and develop a plan of action integrating a personal passion within design. I have long been bothered by architecture which does not function, which does not perform well for the building occupants and the surrounding environment. This manifesto is what I hope to define the foundation of my career upon. As I gain experience my perspectives will undoubtedly change, this essay will simultaneously evolve, reflecting what I have learned and what drives me to continue searching design paradigm.
