Today I had the honor of hearing a lecture by Craig Hodgetts, FAIA of Hodgetts and Fung. It was a perspective of advancement and the ideas that form our society. It presented ideas of pop and classical understanding of an emergent society. Paired with an assortment of virtual reality presenters and entrepreneurs it encourages the push for understanding our roots and maintaining cultures that aren’t bastardized by pluralism. Rather, empowered by understanding and infused with class – to fight for a culture that accepts difference and preserves a proper sense of decency towards tradition and religion – items that preserve sanity in a world that could easily implode with cultural tensions.
