Welcome to AO:B. For the next few months we will be experimenting with the shape of this blog. The hope is that it can be a stand alone site, over lapping with the activities and aims of Architecture Omi; a place to visit and enjoy thinking about architecture’s place in the world right now. The aim will be to offer a look at architecture in it’s broadest sense – stretching the term to include the nominally invisible utilitarian man made environments of our infrastructure (what Stewart Brand describes as “something grey, behind a chain-link fence.”), to environments of desire created by filmmakers and video game designers. Landscape and art will be given an equally broad frame.
We are open to contributions from the AO:B community, and hope to become a resource from them in turn.
