In Building Dialogue’s December issue, SA+R’s Andre Baros offers his unique perspective on buildings and the stories they tell. See an excerpt below and click this link for the full piece.
“In our modern age, buildings are collections of stories – in every sense of the word – and they continue narrate our history whether we intend to or not. Ironically, a quest to be timeless and outside of history has simply led to a new vocabulary of architectural meanings, recording our history just as tirelessly as ever. To be timeless is to always be changing. Generations from now, people will look back and evaluate our architecture through their own stories, not by our intentions. Instead, they will read the stories that endure; the simple levels of simple buildings.” – Andre Baros, Senior Associate
