Our work is multi-disciplinary, both within architecture and beyond it. Because our business model is to find needs that aren't being met and fill them, we develop some unusual products and services, like our way of performing Town Architect services, our Living Tradition series of architectural pattern books, or our place-making tools.
We also work outside of architecture in several ways. The Original Green initiative spans across all disciplines of place-making, even stretching to disciplines like agriculture that weren't previously considered to be part of the equation of sustainability.
Looking at things through many lenses takes you to fertile ground for new ideas. Too many ideas, as a matter of fact. It's clear that a normal lifetime isn't long enough to develop all the ideas that spring up in such an environment.
This blog will lay out a number of ideas we think have merit, but don't have time to develop ourselves. Some of these are really quirky; a few of them even came to me in dreams. Many may look ridiculous to you, but if you see value in one of them, please feel free to develop it yourself. Please email me if you do, because I'd like to know how far the ideas travel.
First post coming soon...
