Concrete Aspirations is changing. You may have noticed over time that this blog has evolved significantly — and for the better, I think. But now, for the first time, I’m shifting focus, from architecture as a singular art to architecture and its role in society. This is going to mean more posts that explore the connection between architecture and politics, between urbanism and politics, between architecture and urbanism, between television and architecture — you get the picture. This is not to say that I won’t continue posting building reviews or lengthy dissections of architectural theory, but rather that the general focus of the blog is moving away from specific architects and specific styles and towards a broader understanding of architecture.
I strongly believe that this shift will broaden Concrete Aspirations’s appeal while at the same time allowing me to more fully express myself.
The only esthetic change, for now at least, is the addition of a new menu below the nameplate. This will allow for quick and easy access to my most popular categories of posts, some of which have just been created as a part of this shift in focus.
So enjoy! I certainly do hope you’ll all stick with me and appreciate this change. And of course, feel free to leave any kind of feedback.
