Back to the Future

We were asked to participate in a publication that the Congress of Residential Architecture (CORA) produced. CORA requested architects and designers all across the country to submit no more than 60 words on the Future of Residential Architecture in America. The submitters included architects, writers, unlicensed designers, members of the AIA and those who are not.

 

CORA published the words of over 60 architects in a book- 60 WORDS: A BOTTOM UP FUTURE FOR OUR PROFESSION. It’s a succinct book and well worth reading for anyone involved with residential design. While I don’t agree with some of the words, and some won’t agree with ours, the book does offer various perspectives worth considering. Our thoughts on the Future of Residential Architecture in America:

“Currently there is no future for residential architecture- there is only the past and the present tense. The daily assault on an architect’s relevance must be countered and above all, fostered. Only when architects can transcend to omnipresence of Today, can the seeds of a future be disseminated. So what will you do TODAY to make architects relevant?”

 

Download your own PDF version of the book here (page 49 is the best!)- 60 WORDS

So, I ask again- what will you do TODAY to make architects relevant? CORA has created an ‘instant book’ which you can add your own 60 words, add them here- CORA ‘Instant Book’

 

Design On,

** Come on, you know we’re right, admit it!
