I recently went to Africa where I experienced the brilliantly designed, environmentally sustainable homes of the Masai in Tanzania, who shape their buildings by hand based on conditions dictated by nature. Would architecture schools be doing their students--and the built-environment--a service by incorporating these methods?
If we consider sustainability, authenticity and human-ness to be important values, would architecture benefit from stepping away from the computer and going back to more hand-drawn design processes?
