12 principles of architecture - Beginning with the home
29 Apr 2023
Grand Designs Magazine Theatre
Robert's practice sees the home as a sacred space and often refers to domestic architecture as ‘temples for living’. His practice recognises the impact architecture, enclosure and space has on the life force of occupant and user and therefore feels the monumental responsibility of an architect’s impact on life, health and relationships. This presentation will share the ’12 Principles’ - considerations that underline his practice philosophy - to imbue and yoke domestic architecture with nature's energies. Robert believes how we think about our homes is accepted and rarely challenged, driven by pseudo-architects, regulation, homebuilding programmes and developers. Robert argues working with these principles will transform your thoughts and ideas about building to create architecture that can nourish your physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing, support relationships, create novelty and bring joy to the everyday.
