from wind and rain
Bryan Welch proposed the following in the building of the world we want:- Is it beautiful... does it make you smile?
- Does it create abundance... life-cycle resource management?
- Is it fair .... socially responsible, sustainable?
- Is it contagious ... does it make others want to do (make) the same?
These questions allow us to transcend decisions based on mere cost or function, avoid getting trapped in the design debates between futurists and preservationists, and allow us to reintroduce humanity in all decisions. This is a perspective which can apply to my everyday choices as well as business decisions, building design and building construction. With these guidelines in mind, I’m eager to start on this future perfect.
