Coming Home to Architecture

The following is a part of the #ArchiTalks series wherein a topic is suggested and a group of architect bloggers each gives their take on the subject.

The topic this month is "Homecoming"

 

What do you come home to?

 

Is it shelter? A house? A home? Where we reside can be all these things. And most are. 

 

But consider what would it be like to come home to architecture. To be inspired as you walk through your door. To know that your home has been painstakingly worked out to meet your needs in a way specific to how you live your life. To know that your home is designed and detailed to be sustainable and energy efficient. To know that your home not only serves your unique needs and lifestyle. But that it contributes to a larger cultural conversation. A conversation about our place in time and our responsibilities to the environment.

 

Architecture is about much more than what home looks like. It is about how it functions. How it feels. How it is used. And how it contributes.
