Intermission


4. Production in the discipline of architecture can be defined by recurring methods and techniques. What new methodologies become necessary in light of perimeter thinking? How do established modes of production get reorganized?

5. How do you view the architect?s role in the perimeter? As society becomes aware of the growing condition of the perimeter, do you see the architect-as- navigator within this system?

6. In its current state, how far do you see the perimeter expanding? Is the perimeter necessarily a fleeting, transitory condition? Or is it possible to locate the edges of a perimeter condition, its beginning and end? How do you see it ending?

Starters


1. Does the perimeter, by definition, entail a proximity to a center? What is the character of this relationship?

2. Given the perimeter, what are the most important tools for the architect? Are there new tools, or are we mutating the usual ones?

3. Is the perimeter a knowable circumstance? Or is it, by definition, formless and out of focus? Is it possible to manage a condition that is seemingly untamable?
