David Adjaye quote of the day from The Root:
"Buildings are deeply emotive structures which form our psyche. People think they're just things they maneuver through, but the makeup of a person is influenced by the nature of spaces."

"Architecture of Memory" is a series of on-site architectural investigations of memory of place through spatial perception. Planning for “Architecture of Memory” began in early 2013. It had originally been planned to take the form of personal cross-country “sensory tours” of architecture by architects that inspired my creative process—E. Fay Jones, Mickey Meunnig, Sim Van Der Ryn among others. It would be a way to tour the United States (much of my prior traveling has been in Europe) and expand my knowledge of architecture in the field with heavy emphasis on experience and sensory perception. The arts administrator in me hopes to create a program for the public following this structure. But now realizing the scale, I plan to complete this series over the course of several years, and produce a text and installation(s) for each project. My hope is that this research will be used as a model for a program or class on spatial perception. More information to come.
1a) the power or process of reproducing or recalling what has been learned and retained especially through associative mechanisms

This is my timeline of thought; a compilation of reminders, questions, inspiration and current events all which affect my creative energy. This blog intends to help strengthen my creative process and reassure my artistic self of a consistency in thought and familiar topics. [Definitions from Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary]
