Being Here:

DesignInquiry Spring 2010: BeingHERE

March 11-14, 2010, Marfa, TX

Our first 4-day Spring Inquiry was held in the high desert town of Marfa, in far west Texas. With mesquite, cacti, tumbleweed, and pristine mountain air, Marfa has a spare and sublime atmosphere that literally suggests a site-specific creativity. BeingHERE was an opportunity to explore an approach to design that is contemplative and reactive, a design that does not prescribe or impose formulas but responds to the conditions that surrounds it.
