Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Human ecosystems become resilient as the codependency between functions becomes entrenched. The built environment process is an extremely complex assembly of different stakeholders, with an ever-increasing pressure from budgetary and time constraints, which works against true integrative transformation of building practices across scales. The necessity for architecture to join other disciplines in evolving a robust research network has never been more apparent. Yet a substantial architectural research discipline will be qualitatively different from that of other fields, as it focuses on integration across, rather than advances within, specialized silos, which makes it absolutely essential and core to our collective task of understanding and shifting ecosystemic behaviors.
