  • Obviously we are dealing here with large projects and obviously we are also dealing here with the globalisation influences of the internet. What we are not dealing here with is the effect that transfering jobs 'overseas' has on a local economy. Ind…
  • "swinemon - didn't quite say you'd get better advice from a drafting office, more that you don't get much from your avererage architect on the issue of fire prevention, except implenting regulations ( something a good drafty like me could do!). just…
  • Well, I just got a Job. It's part time and casual, but I got it on the strength of my Sustainability / Passive solar credetials and at least it isn't cab driving. My boss wants to take the whole company in that direction and to that end he wants a …
  • In the PDF are two "FAQ" regarding the place of design in the new standards: Q. Does the new building standard focus on materials used rather than the design? A. The new building standard sets out suitable materials and construction methods ap…
  • Cabbie. Not sure of your motives but  a very moving piece. I can only thank that I was never as close to hell as all those people were, but even as what I went through in the 07 fires was marginal compared to that it still shocked me to open it up a…
  • Wye. You had the glasses didn't you?  You're a gourmand at heart. Bravo!
  • Sod. Everyone needs proffesional advise. A google search is like saying there are a million trees over there, go and pick our own fruit. Unless you know what your looking for you can get easily lost. As for puritan pastrolism, don't know what you'r…
  • HD, You really should stick to haircuts. At least I am working in the proffesion I presume to talk about
  • Cabbie  I just though it might be worth a try. I was narcissistic imagining that it might happen, as i and a fair few others it seems would wish it. Considering how often the same has been demanded of me, one would think, mmmm, borishness is obviou…
  •  Peter. If early evacuation to a safe locality is an optimum course of action then community bunkers would be very good. As you point out the cost would be prohibitive for most and presumably that means they wouldn't be an option …
  • Some questions are I guess, - is this going to become a 1 in 20 year threat due to global warming and an incessant drought? Climate change would suggest that this could be the scenario. In which case it would be sensible to start designing houses …
  • "Marysville is going to be a grim lesson in what it means when the population chooses freely their own refuge rather than the designated evacuation place." (HD)

    This quote just shows how much of an armchair commentator you are HD. If yo…
  • When will you get it that your rather reviled HD. Your abusive and happy for it. That is repulsive and a lot of posters and readers are fed up with you. You have no arguements. You just love abusing people and then blaming them for what you serve u…
  • "Emotions are running high, but isn't this is the time for building professionals put aside their differences and use their knowledge to put forward (and debate) concise and constructive ideas?" (peter) Well I tried to start off on that tack peter,…
  • Thanks Peter. Fabulous.
  • I can't be bothered with your shit HD. Your neither useful nor usefully informed. [xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] F- off and have this forum all to yourself. And editing for me is an issue of clarity or addendum. last word. your also very likely…
  • Thanks for answering my question re bro bono. The following is the joke apparently and that's a quote, six posts above if you need help, from you hairdresser. You tell me what you have to laugh about and then perhaps we'll all know what you mean. Y…
  • Make a joke with your mates if you want but I have friends whose children have missing class mates and a Iocal car mechanic lost his whole family. I myself went through the 07 fires with the fire less than a Kilometer away three times and passing fi…
  • I reckon you could do the maths yourself hair dresser. You might consider making a submission to the royal commission even but I seriously doubt you'd find many people to crack a joke with down a bunker  while sitting out a fire storm. We don't nee…
  • Providing meaningful discourse is not up to a forum. That's up to the contributors and so long as these xxxxxxxx's keep dominating the discourse with flammable put downs and irrelevant wannabee stylist fan clubbing then you're all out of luck, DAV. …
  • Green architecture is 'hot'? . Stylism is cool, not!
  • I believe this financial crisis coupled, as it is, with the environmental crisis, will see architecture forced to abandon all and any residue of the 'devil may care' unsustainable architecture of the look at me stylists. Functionalist environmentali…
  • So Neville K, what is your position?
  • More or less. No list, no less.
  • I have a little list, but yours is even litttler. Have a great new year all of you!
  • SS "But to think about something before you just do it is architecture." B-n "To think about something before you do it is (considered) wise. To make it sing, that's architecture." Exactly what I said but with more words. Birds sing because they …
  • To think about something as one does it is human. To just do it is divine But to think about something before you just do it is architecture.
  • Here's a list for the christmas spirit,  just to show that I am not ignorant or disrespectful of other peoples beliefs just because I hold another. Seasons greetings. 'The twelve days of christmas' was written down during the tudor period in Englan…
