“A Whole Bunch of Dorics” Book Club
At the beginning of 2020, I started a “thinking in architecture” book club. Meeting monthly, we are a group with varied backgrounds, which keeps those of us in the design world from merely complaining. If you are interested in joining (all are welcome), please email me directly.
There’s a lot to think about these days in our discipline: Why do designers even design things one way over another? When should consistency be preferred over diversity? How does architecture demonstrate the way we perceive the relationship between ourselves and others? Who should be able to act as a guide to frame “big data” into things designers can use as principles? Where is it ethical to design in relation to climate change? Why didn't mere functionality last as the fundamental decision-maker? What is the goal of any of this and who is it for? Is it all subjective?
