CULTURAL DESIGN PRIMER

Intersection – Black Culture + Environmental Design
I want to make a case for the evolution of what I term “A Black Cultural Design PRIMER + Resource Guide”  The foundation of such a case hinges on the fact that the Black architect worldwide will need a stronger unified effort if we are to compete globally in the coming decades.  Rapidly shifting global markets attest to and quite frankly create the fact that the local architect can no longer afford to stay “at home” if he or she is to be viable.
What do Black architectural firms offer a global marketplace as a collective entity?
This PRIMER is a compilation of the inquiries, ideas, concepts, case studies, precedents, methodologies and strategies involved in my own personal design process. It is hoped that others might be inspired by the content here to produce new concepts and concepts merging what I term “Afri-Culture with Design-Culture”.
