Book Description Larry Wolff's New Book: An Architect’s Journey
A new groundbreaking book, An Architect’s Journey, demonstrates how readers can embrace forthcoming revolutionary change by leveraging the experiences, insights, and trends gained by bridging the greatest period of change to ever occur within the time of contemporary architecture. The future trends defining the next few decades support a long-range forecast for unlimited professional opportunity mixed with turbulence, uncertainty, and peril. There is a clear consensus that the future will be entirely different from anything ever known before.
Architecture has changed more in the last 40 years than in the last two centuries. Much of what an architect did not so long ago has become obsolete. To succeed, Architects must strive for positions of leadership, contradict the status quo, expand common thinking, behave unconventionally, abandon exclusive theories, innovate from a framework of multiple perspectives, and skillfully navigate the consequences of complicated choices and actions through collaborative and integrative practices.
Compared to the building industry, no other group will have the greatest impact on the quality of life tomorrow. Sustainability is the most critical issue facing the design profession and it needs to be recognized and treated as such. From the Nuclear Age to the Information Age to the Transformation Age, An Architect’s Journey is both a culmination and a starting point; a rite of passage for both beginner and veteran. (Publication is scheduled for mid-2015).
