|In 1995, when Patricia McCaffrey and I established Cooney Architects, we began by asking ourselves what type of architecture practice do we want to be ? What’s the purpose and the value of the work we’re going to do ? How do we work with people who share our values?
At several points along the journey we’ve asked ourselves again those apparently ‘simple’ questions . Our answers continue to come back to a few principles and aspirations that are at the heart of what we do. Each month we meet as a team and we review our progress under the headings of Art, Human, Learnings and Enough.
|I believe Architecture has a fundamental role in creating and renewing communities, that they become truly sustainable – in the environmental, financial, social, health, equity, beauty and every other sense of that word.
