Observations and Digressions


Forms and Spaces


Why Is There Public Art?

Like many of you, I live in a city, where there is scarcely a square metre of land that some architect, planner or designer hasn’t poked or manipulated – sometimes with spectacular results, other times, not. We are rarely consulted about these intrusions. They just happen.Public art provides a significant departure. It provides a means of improving our daily lives by adding extra meaning to everyday forms and spaces and, in many municipalities, there is even public consultation – asking for our (or our representatives’) input. With public art, we all get the chance to engage with our built environment in a way that is personal and meaningful.

Architectural Writing


Writing About the Built Environment

A lot of people believe that architects can’t write: the general public, architects themselves and, obviously, architectural editors who rely on architects for raw copy. We have to assume that the editors are the geniuses and not the writers, since there must be so much work involved in making architectural writing readable. The Right Angle Journal will be offering a “Releasing Your Inner Writer” seminar at the OAA Annual Conference in Quebec City, on May 22, in Quebec City.
