Most people, at some point in their lives, think about and consider building a home.  There is something romantic, something mysterious, something fulfilling about the opportunity, the possibility to bring an idea from one’s mind, from paper, into the world, into reali...

Brian Roberson architect/ musician speaks on the correlations and similarities between music improvisation and the creative process of design. Using examples from classical, electronic, and jazz music genres he illustrates the differences between technically perfecting...

People often assume that in order to define space, architecture is required.  As artists and architects, we used The Bad Idea to not only explore the development of notions and concepts, but to demonstrate how a single 2-dimensional object (in this case a piece of pape...
