A note from my M.Arch. thesis sketchbook, circa 1992 – always a good reminder that #sustainability isn’t a specialization or an additional service, but a way of thinking, of seeing, and of working. It’s that simple, and that complex at the same time.
Translation, in case you can’t read my 28-year-old scribbles:
The Environment is not an issue, or a set of issues. It is the context in which all issues occur.
