I wish to advance the art and science of humane and sustainable design
through collaborative, evidence - based design.
I am particularly interested in architecture as habitat,
as western peoples now spend upwards of 90% of their lives
within the confines of the built environment.
If design is an outcome of understanding,
what do we understand about human habitat
for at this point in history, that is what we now design.
