Be an Amateur (Architect)



Learning from the life and work of Charles and Ray Eames, I discuss why it’s important to approach problems with the mind of an amateur. The Eameses believed in never delegating understanding and that one must learn by doing. It’s this ethos of experimentation and the use of various media types for artistic expression that’s fueling my architecture practice today. And, it’s positively effecting how many people I’m able to reach and impact in the world. You’ll learn how I’ve applied the amateur strategy to release my first film and to make better architecture.
***I’m also proud to announce that my short film: A Choice to Make was selected to be screened at the 9th annual Architecture and Design Film Festival held in NYC (adfilmfest.com) on November 1st through 5th of 2017. I’ll be there and if you’re in town, I’d love to meet you there too. Come say hi and feast on some architecture films at the CINÉPOLIS CHELSEA, 260 W 23RD St, NY, NY.
