This post is for those that are struggling with how to make sense of the architectural process. I often see students struggle in the design studio with developing a concept with which to understand their own work. I think if I were to generalize their frustrations it would revolve around the why of architecture. We know the basic reasons of why we need architecture in terms of temporal sustainance, but the larger why - why this?, why here?, why there?, why ...? - these questions are often more difficult to tackle. This house by NAF Architect & Design are for those who wish to begin a greater understanding of architecture. This project is not so much about what is there than what is missing. It raises more fundamental questions about the human aspects of architecture and yet is quite easy to understand. You don't have to know much about architecture or design to understand the genealogy of the project. If you want to be a successful designer, don't worry so much about what you don't understand. Instead, find something you do understand, explore it and then build upon it.
