I remain committed to the challenge of architectural discourse encouraged by interdisciplinary approaches and integrative imperatives. In the evolving condition of a world in flux, I hold the view that while reiterated rhythms should be assessed rigorously, new and emerging energies should be addressed vigorously. While I teach the history and theory of mainstream modern architecture, I am also interested in expanding themes at the margins.
