Architectural counselling is not the kind of thing you expect to get while buying your groceries. But that’s exactly what John Morefield is offering. This young Seattle architect set up a booth at a local farmers market and is providing expert advice on a budget. Sure, the whole thing may seem a little bit tongue-in-cheek, but it’s rather brilliant isn’t it? Architects often complaint about being ignored by ordinary people. So how about venturing to where the real people are, opening new stages for plain and unpretentious dialogue on issues like home remodelling, sustainable energy use and budget conscious design.
The idea has been growing strong and now has its own website: Architecture 5¢. The full story can be seen on Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
