Lebbeus Woods on Experimental Projects

“There is a more critical reason for experimental projects of different kinds than the practical benefits that may—or may not—result from them. The truth is that most experiments lead nowhere and judged from a strict cost-benefit viewpoint are a waste. However, learning and invention are notoriously inefficient, requiring many failed attempts and dead-ended explorations to find one that is fertile enough to open out onto a rich new landscape of possibilities. If a society is unwilling to tolerate such waste it will stagnate. In today’s world, which is under tremendous pressures of change, a vital and growing society not only tolerates but actively supports experimentation as the only way to transform the difficulties created by change into creative opportunities to enhance and deepen human experience. This is doubly true for the field of architecture which, charged with continuously remaking the world, is at the forefront of this struggle.”

Well stated point by Lebbeus Woods, we cant undermine the validity of innovation that lies within the experimental projects especially in architecture.

Perspectives for a Conversation about Innovation by Alexander Manu

Perspectives4Innovation

In this document strategic innovator Alexander Manu who is a professor in OCAD, talks about the power of imagination and an act of suspending habit as keys to creating the future that we desire.  By addressing the current trends in human behaviour and technology and putting the reader in an empowered position, he argues that human desire as a primary element which should be used to ask questions about everything that is around us not to just improve but to reinvent and truly shape “tomorrow.Perspectives4Innovation”
