Architecture Depends

The Selfless Plan

This is a rare one where I write specifically about buildings, or in this case the subtlety of the plans of Proctor Matthews Architects. Online here, pdf here.

The Design of Scarcity; 2015; Strelka Press

Co-authored with Jon Goodbun, Michael Klein and Andreas Rumpfhuber. The main outcome of the Scarcity and Creativity in the Built Environment project. At the beginning of this project it became clear that there was no contemporary theory of scarcity that addressed the current conditions, so this book sets out to fill that gap, and then relate that theory to design. It is a short (15,000 words) book, and good value.

The Negotiation of Hope

An extended argument of what participation might be and mean in architecture. Probably my most ?scholarly? piece.

Strong Margins

Short piece on Samuel Mockbee and the Rural Studio, trying to find the line between adulation and critique.

Very early thoughts from our Scarcity and Creativity project. Now looks rather crude.

Angels with Dirty Faces

The article when I found my voice. Stories, the everyday and a sprinkling of theory.
