Stan Allen: Four Projects


The geologic surface is more vulnerable and unstable than ever before: we are facing an era when continental shifts, the disappearance of glaciers, the movement of mountains, and earthquakes and tsunamis are creating a new terrestrial crust and new landforms. Changes in geology and earth processes affects our environment as well as our daily life. What is the role of architecture in solving these urgent issues? What is the appropriate way to address these changes? Landform direction in architecture gives insight to an understanding of the environment, mankind’s relationship to landscape, and urbanism. The understanding of buildings as a link between people and nature bring even more value to this direction.
