Final Thoughts on the Class

Diagram of Design Futures

This is where I see architecture after taking this class.  We used to look at designing a building as an independent structure without any other inputs.  Lately we have seen the fields of technology and environmental thought expanding rapidly and becoming integrated into design.  Rather than focusing on one of these fields, we have started to use technology as a means of enhancing design that is more passive towards energy consumption and takes the environment more into consideration.

We have seen examples of individual buildings that do this but what’s exciting about the field and where we need to expand is the urban scale;  To design cities as systems of buildings that become integrated to one another.  We should use technology to allow our buildings to enhance the landscape rather than rely on it and create patterns of buildings that are thought out together with regards to their impact.
