We have been on a long break but we are back, hard at work.
“Architecture, of all the arts, is the one which acts the most slowly, but the most surely, on the soul.”
Reflecting on the progress of November, the class hopes to complete the roof structure and sheathing before winter break.
“The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.”
I am inspired by this quote everyday. It speaks to the heart of RuffWorks Studio’s motivation to work with non-profit culturally engaged grassroots organizations such as Guardians Institute and All Souls Episcopal Church. It speaks to the reason to be based in a place like New Orleans. Without the informed and engaged cultivation of our own lands, our own programs, our own space we are forever subjugated to others agendas and schedules.
