the Purpose of tsmARCHITECTURE
creating a new practice and a new kind of architecture
tsmARCHITECTURE has been nearly 55 years in the making. While I consider my body of work to date be part of it, this is only the precursor. A foundation for what is to come. What is to come is a new practice of architecture based on a very old tradition, augmented by new processes and technologies just now seeing the light of day. Besides a new way of making architecture, the objective is to make a new kind of architecture. No, this is not throwing everything out. The new architecture incorporates all of it from the last 10,000 years. It adds something new. A new exoteric concept of what architecture is and how it is to be lived in and experienced.

A Syntopical Reading Exercise:
Syntopical Reading
The idea of Syntopical Reading, as developed and practiced by Adler, is to read several books at once while engaging the authors in a dialog which asks them to address issues which may or not be directly treated in their books. In this exercise, the query is what does their work in combination have to tell us about the work of designing, building and using Authentic Architecture as created by a true ValueWeb? This syntopical exercise is best done by ValueWeb® members exploring the tsmARCHITECTURE practice concept.
