Things have rapidly advanced as I ever predicted (since 1964). We are all life-long engaged with installing a fundamentally reorganised social existence – creative as artists, but never “Art for Art’s sake”. As imposed, the post-modern order already unravelled; now a critical world situationi. As I have set out so many times, the major problems […]Read more "AN UNPRECEDENTED EXPERIMENT"
NEW NOMADS – IN A HOUSE OR A HOME? A House is not just impregnable protection, a convenient weather-proofed shelter. Since its Neolithic-era origins, 12,000 years ago, a well-chosen design was the essential ‘machine’ for progressing a fundamental bio-tectonic transformation. Directed as a major modification of Universal Evolution (as ‘Nature’ unaided cannot accomplish) building a […]Read more "NEW NOMADS"
OUR AXIAL AGES The Neolithic Reformation of society was evidently evolutionary effective. 12,000 years ago, in an Axial engagement with Nature, a new ‘logic’ precipitated Humanity’s material and social development. [ https://www.sciencealert.com/ancient-carvings-in-turkey-show-a-comet-hitting-earth-changing-civilisation-forever ] That necessary foundation was and remains primary – effective towards sustaining our ongoing Cosmic enterprise. Long after the primordial control of Fire […]Read more "OUR AXIAL AGES"
By the early 1960’s, following-on several years of intense study along with home and international work experience, I was in my final-years at UK’s ‘Kingston School of Architecture’. That ‘Bauhaus-styled’ course was set at the most-advanced social-progressive level, as yet then rebuilding a post-war world. An annual ‘field-trip’ was a key part of the research […]Read more "HOW TO BECOME A CREATIVE GENIUS"
EVOLUTION – AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT This issue is far more critical than I have managed to convey – as it makes an understanding of today’s unprecedented Evolutionary events. I describes how, in these few last decades, a yet unrecognised but fundamental transformation of human existence is being immediately effected. Key decisions – good […]Read more "EVOLUTION – At the Speed-of-Light"
RE-CONSTRUCTING A SUSTAINABLE SOCIETY As The Greatest Story Never Told. A moment ago (in terms of Universal Time) our home was a primal ‘Paradise’. That Natural World – a ‘Garden of Eden’ – is one now lost except to those ever threatened few recognised awaiting induction into our ‘Civilisation’. As aboriginal, or identified misleadingly as […]Read more "A SUSTAINABLE SOCIETY"
This Concept is not an hypothesis – nor a vague conjecture. All the basic points are well established as proven principles in their respective disciplines – but no one has cross-reference-assembled them into a descriptive theory of their evolutionary organising or formation. I would not wish to waste anyone’s time on reviewing my trivial personal […]Read more "THE THEORY OF FORM"
Our’s is an unique life-time of fundamental transformations; one inconceivable even a few decades ago. This continuing Blog sets out a description of how our ‘Architectures’ have, in the distant past and just now again, been the key evolutionary-activators of this urgent ‘Cosmic’ progress. Evolution, inherently self-creative, ever connective – is observably ongoing, high-active in […]Read more "SPACE-CELL SYSTEMS"
‘Neo-Tectonic Revolution’ This thesis – as I have propounded from fifty+ years ago – is very simple: but then and until now euphemistically dismissed,“radically ahead of its times”. Yet, over those few decades, the global social-economic condition has been dramatically transformed in accordance with that initial  prognosis – while the ‘Architected’ empowering of society […]Read more "NEO-TECTONIC REVOLUTION"
ARCHITECTURE AND EVOLUTION This ongoing assembly of conference-presentations and associated illustrations sets out the basis for reaching a new understanding of the nature of space and time as redefined by Relativity theory – then demonstrates their direct organising relationship to Architecture. It shows how relativistic ‘space’ and ‘time’ patterns and relationships are not confined to […]Read more "ARCHITECTURE and EVOLUTION"
