    HEARTBEAT

    Architecture, townscape, land-use and community-cultural

    development, as they exist in reality amid the mixed results of our

    sullied human nature, are my link to true actualisation and the ideal of

    paradise. In this real world I work gregariously to extend the

    culturally supportive environment in order to enhance our individual

    and collective delight.

    People living in a paradise will actualise and construct to joyfully

    fulfil themselves, their family and fellows. Any threat to that paradise

    will modify that actualisation by the development of solemn purpose.

    My own individual impulse in a paradise would be to actualise both

    ethereally and functionally in art and in building - focused on identity,

    home, cultural communication in daily life and the natural untouched

    beauty and potentials of locale. This would address any aesthetical

    intervention in the environment and the politics of it. This focus would

    be in finishing works and events that support appeal to the spectrum of

    delights. In this way land-use planning is an architecture capable of

    fostering delight. Functional constructions carry delight.

    One of the collective delights is achievement by others of appropriate

    individual expression in the environment as part of the cultural

    accumulation a celebration of individuality. This delight can arise

  • from the ethereal thumbprint on a jewellery piece, a manner of speech,

    unique placement of an industrial item, an inspiring land-use program

    or simply an aesthetic aspect of an otherwise pragmatic building. All

    interface in physicality and culture.

    Another collective delight is the home locale. This is under severe

    threat in todays world. It is invaluable to remind people of the fullness

    of their individual address, their original landscape, their rights and

    potentials in the public realm and their shared ownership of

    development. It is invaluable to refresh the delicately sensitive links to

    the paradise portion of our world - and consequently to foster individual

    actualisation and delight unique development, industry and

    enjoyment.

    Art is real. It is the difference between building and architecture and

    planning and cultural landscape. Architecture is art. Art may be

    economic or otherwise. Packaging may be pragmatic or communicative.

    A building is much more than an artful package.

    Excellence more often than not is low in profile.

    Thankyou
