Visionary architect Glen Small doesn’t need a computer. He can take a bunch of scrap paper, cardboard and some glue and make amazing models. He’s also of the last generation of architects who know their way with pen, paper and watercolors.
Small was one of the early proponents of a style of architecture informed by natural forms and environmental concerns. He was one of the founding members of the architectural school SCI-Arc. And I’m hoping to have him on the podcast soon.
If you’re in the Southern California area you have a great opportunity to take an inexpensive, hands-on architectural modeling class with him at Copper Mountain College in Joshua Tree, CA.
