eliinbar Sketches 2010– “Conscious Inspiration”

Quote from Post written By Kai K. Gutschow Assoc. Prof. – Corneigie Mellon University , School of Architecture :

Much as in science or any other discipline, true innovation comes not from inventing something out of the blue and by yourself, but instead is only possible when one engages the profession, adds to an existing knowledge base, discourse, or dialogue, and opens up new frontiers on questions asked by yourself AND others. 

It is only by participating actively in the 2000 year old discourse of architecture that we can move ahead.   Only if we all begin to see our work as “research” can we begin to raise the level of architecture and the quality of ideas at the CMU SoA.    My suggestion: READ AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, on architecture, or any other subject that fascinates you, take notes, and let it influence your work! The best architects have a rich history of reading and loving books, of being bibliophile.
