PRACTICE : A NEW BEGINNING
I want to be able to engage with every aspect and stage of a building’s design and construction with each client, a reason why the practice, NOW, will need to be different - a, largely, one person practice and consequently why the practice NOW cannot include large scale buildings.
Social Housing and neighbourhood projects by ‘Not for Profits’ will always be an exception
Learning from a Glen Murcutt or, closer home, a (late) Lawrie Baker – I, too, want to – in the NOW - be able to channelize my energy into relatively smaller projects that let me work, largely, alone - not only on design but in building; as well I want to be able to pay close attention to the entire gamut of project delivery – from conception to occupation.
Idea is to help develop sustainable, healthy and equitable habitats through Design for Integration - Design for Energy - Design for Equitable Communities Design for Well-being - Design for Ecosystems - Design for Resources Design for Water - Design for Change - Design for Economy and Design for Discovery
J. Carter Brown, Pritzker Prize jury chairman on Laureate Murcutt : "In an age obsessed with celebrity, the glitz of our starchitects, backed by large staffs and copious public relations support, dominates the headlines . . . . . our laureate works in a one-person office on the other side of the world . . . . so intent is he to give each project his personal best “ Murcutt said in his 2002 Pritzker acceptance speech. "Any work that exists, or which has the potential to exist, is related to discovery. We do not create the work. I believe we, in fact, are discoverers."
