I enjoyed reading your blog. Hope your summer is going well!
I’ve finally chronicled this semester on my website if you’re interested. All images and drawings in a very high resolution – It’s available here: danrapoport.net/academic/gdmc
Hope all is well in Greensburg.
All the best,
I just added a link from my blog (jgrarchitect.com) to your post on contractors – In defense of the Other side. You are welcome to tell me how you wish to be noted; I said “architect and professor”.
Although as someone who works mostly with old houses, I might have written about other aspects, I feel no need to rewrite what you have said so well.
I assume you do not mind the link. If so, please let me know.
Jane, thanks. I am honored you’d mention me and my blog as you did.
Lee, read your blog. Impressed. Clearly, anyone promulgating a position that we don’t need drawings in AR is bound to get noticed. More so when the blog asked a question essentailly and, to an unguarded extent, led my curiosity to the point where I understood your point.Good job.
If you’re willing to stick around, you’ll find my warped style will surface another twist like that. Beware, I’ve been known to employ sarcasm too. Thanks for your kind words.
Nice blog Lee!
thanks, yours too…I listened to one good interview
Very interesting reading, Lee. Thanks for sharing your insight. Only wish all architects were as willing to put themselves out there.
thanks for reading…just trying to make a small difference.
[…] between zoning and building code, especially if you’re looking at a new site for a project, Lee Calisti has an amazing post over at his blog think|architect. It applies to Canada just as much as the […]
i read your blog about zoning vs building code. this is always the problem if you’re about to build on a confined space, where there is so much restriction and need to follow the code. the problem is what will happen to your design?
the client will not be satisfied if there will be too much open space, the fire dept. would not agree if there will be 3 sides firewall.
meaning, there should be a thorough understanding and studies in which the right professional ‘the architects’ should be hired, so that the client understands how things work for both safety, aesthetics and good investment.
…reading your blog is very helpful, since i also make few articles about architecture, not talking about the projects but more on the attitude and life of an architect. hopefully you can visit or we can exchange links and insights someday.
thanks for reading. this is our job not only to design but to educate about design.
