This retreat was desgined and built by Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen. A self-initiated and self-financed project. The main dilema for emerging architects is finding clients willing to take a chance with young, enthusiastic architects that have limited experience.
If progress is shaped by human needs, then general shifts in needs would also bring shifts in the nature of technological innovation.
…One of the consequences is that, as we move to the top level of the innovation hierarchy, the inventions have less visible, less transformative effects. We’re no longer changing the shape of the physical world or even of society, as it manifests itself in the physical world. We’re altering internal states, transforming the invisible self. Not surprisingly, when you step back and take a broad view, it looks like stagnation - it looks like nothing is changing very much…
If the current state of progress disappoints you, don’t blame innovation. Blame yourself.
