An Architectural Idealogue
It is around the time you have put 10 years into a craft that you begin to hit a stride. It is then that you begin to understand all the parts and pieces of your profession, and how they come together.
But this alone does not bring about innovation.
That takes closing your eyes, having a vision that emboldens your deepest values, and then harnessing the parts and pieces to accomplish that goal.
I am dedicated to high-performance envelopes (meeting Passive House standards), shop prefabrication and automation, panelized and modular delivery of buildings, and full integration of building systems. I am dedicated to using technology to accelerate the affordability of homes for the middle class.
But these are just tools to achieve an idea: of buildings that are extensions of the landscape, that reinforce a spiritual bond between humanity and the earth. Like books I have written, this sketchbook is an `idealogue' a travelogue in the exploration for a new natural architecture.
