About 

I am interested in anything which allows me to learn more.  As I have grown as an architect, I find myself increasingly less hardline on what makes architecture great.  In the end, I feel that satisfying the needs of a community and creating a sense of place and comfort are the goals of architecture.

Christopher's School Blog on Archinect:

From Retrospective to Retroactive : MArch research into book and beyond

I will chronicle my design research and degree project, providing commentary on my though process at the time. From there, I will transform the body of work into a book which seeks to place into dialogue the two (currently) separated semesters of work.
