Architecture involves measurable (tangible) and immeasurable (intangible) elements, which makes the pursuit of good architecture a constant challenge for all project contributors. It is often the immeasurable aspects, the intuition and feel for a project and the way in which actors interact, which help to bring about exciting, creative and functional buildings that reflect the best of humanity, time and place. In this article the author explores the role of technological design within an environmentally responsible age. The narrative moves through the sustainable vernacular to the constructive link between design and construction, concluding with some reflections on the shape of things to come.
