  8. 8. / Monte John Latham URBAN LAND ROOM IDENTITY COAST P A R T I C I P A N T I N A R C H I T E C T U R E S HEARTBEAT Architecture, townscape, land-use and community-cultural development, as they exist in reality amid the mixed results of our sullied human nature, are my link to true actualisation and the ideal of ‘paradise’. In this real world I work gregariously to extend the culturally supportive environment in order to enhance our individual and collective delight. People living in a paradise will actualise and construct … to joyfully fulfil themselves, their family and fellows. Any threat to that paradise will modify that actualisation by the development of solemn purpose. My own individual impulse in a paradise would be to actualise both ethereally and functionally in art and in building - focused on identity, home, cultural communication in daily life and the natural untouched beauty and potentials of locale. This would address any aesthetical intervention in the environment and the politics of it. This focus would be in finishing works and events that support appeal to the spectrum of delights. In this way land-use planning is an architecture capable of fostering delight. Functional constructions carry delight. One of the collective delights is achievement by others of appropriate individual expression in the environment as part of the cultural accumulation – a celebration of individuality. This delight can arise
  9. 9. from the ethereal thumbprint on a jewellery piece, a manner of speech, unique placement of an industrial item, an inspiring land-use program or simply an aesthetic aspect of an otherwise pragmatic building. All interface in physicality and culture. Another collective delight is the home locale. This is under severe threat in today’s world. It is invaluable to remind people of the fullness of their individual address, their original landscape, their rights and potentials in the public realm and their shared ownership of development. It is invaluable to refresh the delicately sensitive links to the paradise portion of our world - and consequently to foster individual actualisation and delight …… unique development, industry and enjoyment. Art is real. It is the difference between building and architecture … and planning and cultural landscape. Architecture is art. Art may be economic or otherwise. Packaging may be pragmatic or communicative. A building is much more than an artful package. Excellence more often than not is low in profile. Thankyou
