  • Why the 21st Century will be the age of self-reliance

    Why the 21st Century will be the age of self-reliance

    I just finished reading an awesome book called ‘Choose Yourself!’ by James Altucher, and I’ve got to say… It’s true. The economic collapse of 2008 has made it abundantly clear. We’re not hiring anymore. Corporations don’t need to hire as much anymore because of technology.  Technology has already replaced paper.  We work in paperless offices […]

  • Warning: Do not stop building.  Just find new ways to use your energy wisely.  The future depends on it.

    There is this perception out there that architects are sometimes wasteful.  We carve out large areas out of small ones.  We over-design by using materials in excess.  We create superfluous forms that don’t make much sense.
