Trying to find momentum

In the meantime…

I remember an early lecture in architecture school about America’s “kleenex” culture—the use-once-and-throw-away characteristic of our society. Here‘s the UN and its membership entry.

Continuing the discussion on what in design is more authentic as the economy changes—democratic ecology, intelligent design, longevity…and the burbs.

So, maybe about 30 years ago, I scribbled some graphic notes in my sketchbook representing sound levels in the city. I was interested in what might give a different topography to the city, and what considerations might generate a different kind of architecture. I was also interested to discover if activity levels correlated with financial speculation. That is, did the architectural topography of place (assumed to be financial) have any relationship with the social (my noise level/graphic equalizer map) topography. Fund to find other explorations.

And I can’t remember where this came from, but thanks for the delightful A History of Visual Communications.
