A people adopts what we now refer to as ‘sustainable’ practices with desire, meaning, and purpose. My growth and explorations in architecture have always centered around purpose - each ray of light cast has a reason for lying on the floor, for leaning against a wall. Natural ventilation is not only a movement of air removing moisture and heat from the skin, it is the sensual experience of a breeze. When we interlock beauty with strategies of ecological living we can create cycles of use with the potential to renew themselves infinitely. Architecture is not about the expressive flair of the designer, the designer’s knowledge is an archive appropriated to overlap fundamental emotional experience and the natural world yielding beautiful, efficient, meaningful space.
