Biography

Just another Texas boy. I've been at UH since I came here as a student in '73. Participating in SBSE and ARCC has been a very important lifeline for me.

Areas of Research / Professional Expertise

    My agenda is two-fold and interlinked: First, to bridge between the strategic and physical aspects of design by demonstrating the whole-minded congruence of intelligent foresight with sublime immediacy in successful works of architecture. And secondly, to frame the discipline of architecture in a new postindustrial and aesthetic context (as design, research, forensics/planning, and educational domains). That context entails cybernetic operations (i.e., information society), systems thinking (i.e. organic feedback loops), and dynamic complexity (i.e., complementary differences). My theoretical touchstones include the work of P. Geddes, K. Popper, H. G. Gadamer, R. Scruton, and D. Bell, as well as the general literature of systems theory
