Douglas Cardinal – Creating Vision



2005, Art & Design
Presented By: Douglas Cardinal

Architect Douglas Cardinal looks at the history of architecture and compares it to the buildings we see today. Douglas says that historically, architects looked to nature for inspiration, but buildings arise now from a contrived origin. Creativity is a spontaneous process, he says, one that comes from not knowing. He believes, too, that space shapes the role of its visitor, and that in creating a new space it is the job of the architect to consider its effect. Today’s “box” buildings have a demeaning effect, he says, as they come not from creativity but from a preconceived idea. It is this conviction that has shaken his career.
