Happy New Year to all my readers. I know that I've been on a bit of a hiatus, but I have made it a New Year's resolution to post here on a regular basis. So after all the Christmastide revelry, gallons of eggnog, countless hours of college bowl games and such, it's time to get back to the business of architecture.
Posts coming up today and in the next week or two will be focusing on:
Architectural theory - Doing my best to discover a "new" theory of architecture.
Pastiche - Responding to a series of comments on Greater Greater Washington about Robert Adam's criticism of the word.
Beauty - Following up on Abdel El-Wakil's comments on the first principles of architecture.
Historic Preservation - Keeping up on the DC area debates about what constitutes architecture worth preserving.
Architectural Education - Trying to define some basic principles in educating architects of the future.
Welcome back, lets get the ball rolling in a New Year!
