Debate at UT’s Center for American Architecture & Design

Tim Love recently participated in a debate at the University of Texas Center for American Architecture & Design. Fiona Cousins, a Principal and Engineer at Arup, and Tim argued that “design is the prime mover of great design.” They were trounced by the team that argued against the assertion: Leslie Van Druzer, the Director of the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the University of British Columbia; and Nat Oppenheimer, Executive Vice President and Engineer at Robert Silman Associates. Poetics trumped pragmatism and data-driven rigor once again!
