Short Takes: A New Addition to The Architects’ Take

Sunday, March 18, 2012 | | Short Takes

As they say, Content is King, but the democratization of the web allows anyone to say anything. That’s what intrigues me- I trust thinking people to decide for themselves. If you don’t like what you read, start your own blog!

The beauty and challenge of New Media is it’s ease of use. As they say, Content is King, but the democratization of the web allows anyone to say anything. That’s what intrigues me- I trust thinking people to decide for themselves. If you don’t like what you read, start your own blog!

Rebecca and I hope that you have been enjoying our latest Interview Series, The Women in Architecture  program.  As each of the interviewees has stated so eloquently, architecture is a tough business for anyone, especially for women. I’ve been fortunate to get to know them all and share our experiences at dinners, events and committee meetings.  We are fortunate to practice in the Bay Area where open, challenging conversation is possible.

When Rebecca and I decide on a story direction, we’ll get together at the whiteboard and run through lists of possible interviewees and questions. The diagram shown above is the formative outline for the current series.

I hope you find the newest addition to The Architects’ Take, “Short Takes”, to be entertaining and informative. My goal is to include short observations about my profession, the built environment, people of interest, or news in general as items of interest come to me.

As always, please feel encouraged to comment, and let us know if there is someone you think we should interview!

Thanks, Mark

    Mark and Rebecca,

    Keep up the great work!
