Title– How Architecture Tells- 9 Realities That Will Change the Way You See
This is a FREE event
The general reading public is likely to think of architecture as buildings. But, with this book, Robert Steinberg would like to help readers understand that architecture shapes lives. Architecture can help communities integrate and thrive. Architecture can touch us, influencing how we feel and how we interact with others. In short, architecture can fundamentally improve our quality of life.
How Architecture Tells is not a collection of pretty pictures of an architect’s work, although all of the work here is profoundly attractive. Instead, here the reader will learn how architecture, in the right hands, brings people together to live in harmony with each other and with nature.
Rob Steinberg FAIA is Chairman of Steinberg Hart, a global architecture firm with offices in NY, Texas, California and China. Rob is internationally recognized as an expert and design practice innovator in urban planning and mixed-use projects that have resulted in new and thriving communities, both in the United States and China. He is active in several academic and real estate related organizations including his role as ULI Governor, Executive Board Member of SPUR – urban policy research and think-tank, and Policy Advisory Board Member at University of California Berkeley Fisher Center for Real Estate & Urban Economics. Rob is writing a book, “How Architecture Tells – Nine Laws That Will Change the Way You See the World”, scheduled for publication in 2021.
- The premise of the book is that architects need to consider each of the 9 Realities on every project that they undertake to avoid missing an opportunity to elevate their work and feel confident that their project has been fully considered
- Robert Steinberg would like to help readers consider architecture as a social art, understanding that architecture shapes lives, influencing how we feel and how we interact with others and the potential of architecture to shape communities.
- People exist every day in the built environment of our homes, neighborhoods and cities that very few have been counseled how to evaluate. To meaningfully participate/contribute requires level of understanding. The built environment speaks a language that is available to everyone if you know what to look for.
