But a home is a fragile thing: vulnerable to quaking ground, rushing water, violent winds&mdash;not to mention, the volatility of finances and health. This has never been more true than in the time of climate change. The global thermostat of the home in which we build our homes is on the fritz.&nbsp;</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/149938601/architectural-panel-tape-proves-its-strength-with-spf-architects-double-stick-project Architectural panel tape proves its strength with SPF:architects' Double Stick project Alexis Petrunia 2016-04-09T10:49:00-04:00 >2016-04-18T00:04:01-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/tg/tge31qrgfxs1lgrm.jpg" width="650" height="398" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>The &ldquo;Double Stick&rdquo; residence comes by its name honestly.

Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies. He is a familiar name in Southern California. Mr. Woo has served in Los Angeles City Council and ran for the mayor's office in 1993 as the Democratic candidate, losing by a small margin to Republican candidate and businessman Richard Riordan. A planner by education, Mr. Woo is a unique dean for a design school with the background of an established politician and, to a degree, an environmental activist. I sat down with him last December in his office and had this conversation.</p>
