Humanity is at a crossroads: we must reform our ways, or we will completely degrade the systems which support us. We architects have the tools to achieve this transformation. We bring mythology, technology, law, and art together to make environments that bring us health and joy.
Our implicit goal is that everything we do, everything we make, contributes to the world around us. This goal inspires our studies of permaculture and our efforts to design light fixtures and furniture. Good buildings start with good gardens. Buildings need not sit ignorantly of the land, but may animate outdoor spaces.
