What is Sci-Arc?  What is it for? Does their experimental approach have any practical implications to the real (built) world?

 

In what other type of environment would risk and failure be pursued as a necessary product to success?  We have been building for centuries.  It’s not that hard.  Sciarc’s goal is not to ignore the realities of the built environment, but to challenge them.  To push them forward. Building is something that you learn through process.  What makes Sci-Arc different is its focus on innovation and creativity.

 

Learning how to see.

Why does their work look like Gehry-esque projects? It’s too unrealistic.  
Too futuristic, too expensive, and therefore unbuildable?  That’s what they said about Tesla Motors. Elon Musk’s company isn’t the first to build an electric car, yet it is now leading the change in landscape for how we think about the production of future vehicles.

 

Academic Institutions, especially Sci-Arc, are a place to test, to explore...

Find someone so good, it scares you, because they go further than you are able to imagine.

"My thesis of humanity is that we are not squirrels. If you watch squirrels in the fall, they all do the same thing — they hide the acorns and stuff, they never help each other out, and they don’t do anything non-squirrel-like. They’re just squirrels — that’s their job. We’re beyond that, I would hope. And if we’re spending a lot of time in squirrel-like behavior, we’re selling ourselves short."

How do you define freedom, choice, and happiness?  We actually feel worse because our expectations are too high.
