Cascieri Continues to Inspire

Last night's Cascieri Lecture delivered by Steve Badanes of Jersey Devil workshop, provided the perfect impetus for this blog. At the reception and after the lecture, conversations with BAC friends centered around expanding the way to practice architecture that honors our whole being and confronts our perceived limitations. Since 2001 effortlessdesign has practiced an alter-native architecture. Like Steve said it hasn't been easy, and it is definitely slow. 
There are lots of challenges of being fully employed to use our skills and further develop our capabilities. Yet on this road we have completed projects, and had tremendous fun building. Particularly at the community level, using the design-build workshop, effortlessdesign encourages designers to have a vision, be engaged, and practice. Staying connected, and sharing our work on the web will increase our opportunities.
