“The Reluctant Architect” is a series of vignettes regarding the nature of language, art and architecture. This journal asks the reader to examine and reexamine the nature of our world and mankind’s contribution to the aesthetic landscape we have created and continue to create. It is no longer enough to merely solve problems; rather we are compelled to advance the most elegant solutions on the nature of how we live. The time has never been better as our native landscape has become littered with the product of a market driven architecture with little or no regard for the fragile nature of the earth and its dwindling resources. In addition, architects have all but forgotten the simple lessons of utility, beauty, proportion and the poetics of architecture.
