Comments about PBS Citizen Architect: Samuel Mockbee and the Spirit of the Rural Studio DVD:

Mockbee's work helps to humanize the industry; it builds bridges between the designers of the structures, the builders and the occupants. This is 360 degree excellence. The entire process touched me. I will visit and bring others to see results of the work and the grounds where these fertile seeds were planted.
This DVD is an investment and a valued addition to my library.

ARCHITECTS NEED TO KNOW THIS

Comments about PBS Citizen Architect: Samuel Mockbee and the Spirit of the Rural Studio DVD:

simply impressed. i was glad to see somebody is practicing true means of architecture.
AIA have gone the wrong direction long time ago. Most arch school are not producing true architects.
architectural theories and philosophies are important as well as what we can do for the communities and what is buildable to accomodate needs.
re-think the direction of architectural education and AIA licensing requirements.
I love it.
