Responsive Architecture & The Dilettante

Philip Beesley designs immersive environments. Vast, synthetic, crystalline structures that respond to our presence, promoting responsive sensitivity and interaction between us and our environment on a mutual level, subverting the historical stance toward landscape as a dead materiality to be hammered out and mastered.

Towards the end, an important question is raised regarding the value of being multi-disciplinary, a risky space where one can have superficial knowledge of many things and have to face the difficulty of fostering confidence in navigating generalism, synthesizing disparate areas of knowledge, and still achieving some kind of substance.
