What does it mean to Shape Place?
The notion of the architect as ‘creator of form’ is one that has been well documented over the years. And while no one would downplay the sublime degree of art and craft inherent in their work, it is obvious that Turan Duda and Jeff Paine reject the idea of architecture as a commodity-driven endeavor. They are much more inclined to talk about the role of the architect in the capacity as creator of connections and as a builder of community.
