File under 'better late than never'. NB: This is a write-up of a talk that took place at Postopolis! LA during April 2009. Notes are taken in real-time, with editing and context added afterward so reader beware. All Postopolis! LA entries are gathered here.
I’ve known Bryan for a few years, so it was a pleasure to have him speak at Postopolis! LA. (Note: some of the images below are from Bryan’s deck, which he kindly sent me afterwards.)
One of the more forward-thinking architects I know, Bryan exemplifies one aspect of the architecture on show at Postopolis! LA - that of fluid frontiers around the discipline, of the application of a design discipline for strategic value outside of its traditional parameters of the built environment. (There are echoes of the debates around design thinking here, even further beyond Leon van Schaik’s notion of architecture re-calibrated as “spatial intelligence” rather than “technologies of shelter”.)
