We believe that a Renaissance of ideas is inevitable in the wake of the current digital communications revolution; the excavation and interpretation of these ideas, and their incorporation into a larger body of knowledge will be of paramount importance. We want to be protagonists in the creation, digestion, and promulgation of this historical narrative.
We are committed to providing the Internet community with high quality research and multimedia presentations which investigate the past, present, and future of the Architecture of the environment and of the intellect:
Architecture: Any structure of human creation, tangible or otherwise which produces an outcome or effect. Architecture, in this sense, by virtue of its interaction with the human condition demands investigation into both the motives for creation and the real outcomes on the human living system.
We also believe that as a medium, the written word often plays an a priori and pivotal role in the development, transformation, and communication of thoughts and ideas. We support literary investigations, tangential to the tangible objects of the visual and the spatial, as a means to cultivate ideas from many disciplines.
Architecture, as it is classically understood, is primarily represented by voluminous entities of human creation. Architecture as defined above, and as utilized in the English lexicon has grown to include all manner of designers and creators. There are Architects of war, Architects of peace, and web Architects, just to name a few. The human being is an artistic animal. The avenues for human expression are a manner of construction: material, intellectual, or otherwise.
We are all architects; but we often do not know what edifice or idea to which our efforts contribute.
