Valid

I don’t know much about art, but I know what I like. No, I do not like that phrase, nor subscribe to its tenets. Nevertheless, if we wish to have autonomy as citizens of this country or this planet and ascribe value in the objects we possess, we must not submit to the artificial value […]

Theory and abstraction are not the same. I’ll scratch the surface. When I started architecture school in 1986, the first two core classes of Kent State University’s curriculum in those days were Theory of Architecture I and II. Second year greeted us with Theory III and IV. Most classes had Roman numerals IV, V, and […]

What am I thinking about today? Details – not just literal architectural details, but I’m thinking about how we as architects imagine and plan for multiple events, components and at times relationships coming together – beautifully. It does not just happen. For the most part, we spend our time on the literal details. This is […]

Yes, I’m thinking about something today. If you don’t know me, I am an architect whose firm focuses on adaptive reuse. I’ve been fortunate to have been commissioned to renovate, dare I say rehabilitate many properties in my hometown of Greensburg, Pennsylvania. I live in the city and frequently take on projects in the downtown […]

Think | Architect by Leecalisti - 5M ago

What am I thinking about today? Today, it is more what I’d rather not be thinking about if I had to be honest. People talk, people talk a lot, people need to stop talking. Consider it curious or destiny, I find myself on the topics of building codes today, but that happens to be only […]

What am I thinking about today? Well, I’d love to brag and make everyone think that every day in an architect’s life is glamorous and exhilarating, but that would be a lie. However, as we had another job meeting for this project (job meeting #10), I took more photos for the record, but one could […]

What am I thinking about today? Design. Oddly, days after my wife and I were discussing options to reinvent my blog for 2019, of which one idea is posting images a few times a week of something I did during that day, my friend Bob Borson releases his latest podcast where Andrew and he discuss what an architect […]

What am I thinking about today? I believe that there is no greener pasture; if one wants to be an architect, then make it work. Some days it’s really difficult and some regions cannot be sustainable for a small firm or solo practitioner. I’ve read too many posts on social media recently that carry on […]
