This is a world of connected devices, wireless access to all things, at all times. The Smartphone is the digital gateway to our daily lives. Never before has a single medium or technology so dramatically changed the very nature of our existence. In an age of user generated social content, the smartphone and smart devices will become a key driver of pedagogical and subsequent architectural design evolution.

Architectural Manifesto: The System is the Message

In our time, architecture is expressed through the built form. We say that the form of Architecture is derived from its function. If an experience is ever changing and occurring over time, it cannot be definitively defined, but only observed as it occurs. Refined and honed as a process. By iterating on the mixed medium experiences, through iteration of process, it is conceivable that the next medium will structure itself.

Pedagogical Approach

Boat building is an inherently hands on pursuit. In a rapidly changing, digitally saturated era of all things, at all times, why is it that tertiary pedagogy has remained relatively stagnant? The development of new technologies over history have extend our architectural ability to build ‘er’. That is; bigger, faster, lighter, stronger and so on.
