"The love is gone.
The poetry in bricks is lost."
Archigram Paper One
The economics of "new media" have left the North Texas Metroplex without a critical dialogue at a point in our history when we need a clear architectural voice more than ever.
By population count, we are the 4th largest metropolitan area in the United States. None of the top 3 are growing as fast as we are, yet we still struggle to define our identity.
Knowing it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness, we present ROBERT.
Robert is not a person.
Robert is a voice.
Robert is the voice of civil, critical, productive discourse about the built environment in North Texas.
Robert is your voice.
Robert cares about Architecture, Urbanism, Public Policy, and Economic Development.
Robert cares about the forces that are shaping Dallas.
No architecture is worse than a missed opportunity. ROBERT intends to open the dialogue of Dallas in a manner that focuses on a collective mindset that strives to uncover the critical, praise the successes, and recognize the potential in the Metroplex. We have a central voice again....but why not many. Whether you live in Dallas or have something to say about it, speak through Robert and submit your piece to firstname.lastname@example.org. The basis is open.
