Am talking today in a workshop with Veronika Valk at the Parallax conference in Melbourne. Conference so far is wonderful. Am blogging from the Betsky/Manaugh session this morning. Given the coherent narrative of value Manaugh gave to blogging for thinking about architecture I felt the desire to blog immediately. I think the best part about this mornings two presentations is that the intersect on the issue of what 'counts' as architecture. The answer is that it doesn't end with buildings, especially not with those designed by architects. It doesn't even start there. Can't wait to talk about microbialites later, as the worlds first architecture.
