justpractising – new blog on the block

Great to see new blogs being created that address issues relating to the built environment and web 2.0 ‘stuff’

Fellow twitter Su Butcher has joined the blogosphere with justpractising:

So here it is. A blog about architects.

There are three things I want to do with this blog, things I have been doing elsewhere on the internet for some years but in a pretty unco-ordinated way it must be said.

Firstly, I want to help explain what it is that architects can do, what they are good at (and not so good at), how you can use them to get where you want to be with your property, and of course, what they should be doing differently.

Secondly, I’m a bit of a networking nut and very keen on using the internet for networking, so I’m taking the opportunity to investigate how the construction industry is and is not using the internet, so there will be plenty of opinionated posts about that too.

Lastly, I’d like to ask the people who read this for your suggestions on what I should blog about. If you know me already you might have some ideas, and if you don’t, take a look at what I’ve got to say and let me know what’s missing. In good networking parlance, if I don’t know myself, I can find out who does.

    Hi, Martin.
    I’m architect in Romania.
    It’s a long, long replay to your questions. What is architecture? But What is art? What is science? You may write a whole library on the topic.
    But, shortly:
    Architecture is an art and a science; but is more than that, it’s a syncretical combination of both.
    What can do the architect? almost anything, if he’s really architect (but many aren’t).
    Your property is in the meaning you paid for it; but this does not confer you the right to pollute the landscape, nor to built a insecure building. Think: I come in your house and it collapse just then; can you say: it’s my property?
    Well, there is a lot to talk on the plot.
    Best regards, Dan, http://danmihalache.wordpress.com
