Candide Round Table

A week from today I will be participating in a round table discussion timed to the launch of Candide. Journal for Architectural Knowledge. The panel focuses on knowledge, writing, and architectural publishing, among other things. I'll be alongside 306090's Emily Abruzzo, Yale's Nina Rappaport, and Columbia's Kazys Varnelis. Between now and then I need to work on de-jangling my public speaking nerves, come up with a brief slideshow on why I do my blog and weekly web page, and think about the questions posed in the press release below. If you attend the discussion be sure to say hi!

  1. You really gonna discuss "why should architects write"? Everyone can write and share in This age.

  2. Viv, does the fact everyone can write answer why architects should write? I know what you mean, but I think the question is aimed at exploring the goal(s) of writing, be it online, in journals, magazines, etc. And how does an architect's writing impact their designs, if at all?
