Curious and sociable.
Lauren’s CreativeMornings activity
It’s not all smooth sailing being an autodidact.
Crossover is going to be the context within which we live.
In order to really thrive and do well within in this context of change… we’ve got to be able to navigate an uncertain path.
There were a lot of bad ideas in this project... But it turned out really nice.
Beauty will actually come out of a rigorous study of analyzing and beginning to understand how that particular product and how that building performs.
In many architects minds, our paintbrush is the light.
Ugly is subjective.
Take more chances, make more art, and launch more often.
The biggest chance we can take, is to not take enough creative chances.
Every work we make, makes us.
Our fear is a creative ally that we should treasure and befriend.
Our creativity is the source of our vitality. The more we make, the more we put it out there, the more alive we feel, the happier we are, and the better the world is.
The reason why it’s [education] so important is because it’s a fight for what young people will think. It’s what young people should know, what all people might posses in information or knowledge in order to communicate with each other and even other cultures… It’s also a battlefield for the kind of place that you would live it, it would define the people around you and it would also define the education level of people who vote in a democracy.
It’s education I can’t stand, but it’s learning I love.
The act of me declaring myself a student is as important as the act of me declaring myself the teacher or master in any given situation, and I like to exchange that from time to time.
Talking about not knowing and knowing and the space between, is a great privilege… It’s about a bridge. When you talk about not knowing something, it is almost the precise formation of what you wish to know.
Education, and in particular learning, is like one of these wonderful self-fulfilling prophecies. As soon as you can articulate what you want to know, it is there for your grasp.
