Of Cartoons and Performance

David Cook from Behnisch is coming to teach a studio at this quaint architecture school I attend and is interested in investigating "sustainability" through the lens of behavioral patterns and urban infrastructures.

In his studio brief he references Heath Robinson the English cartoonist as an exemplar for media and suggests that we will be doing quite a bit of cartooning in our early phase research.  I must say I can hardly contain myself in excitement at the potential of this studio.  I'm having fever dreams of turning this little corner of Oregon into a mini-Bartlett, ala Smoot Allen and CJ Lim (who is a self avowed Robinson fan).
