After reading the prompt, i instantly knew this was the blog i had to do. I am a strong believer in the idea that in Western society, we tend to rush to conclusions and hurry to solve a problem without really thinking a lot about the long-term. I've always felt that America at least has always been okay with a short-term answer to a long term problem, and that in itself is a huge problem. I plan on addressing that throughly in my career, as it seems like it is going to the main problem facing not only Western society but the whole world. As an Architect in this current time and age, one where only now are we beginning to see the effects of our cheap short-term answers, as questions of sustainability are constantly brought forth every single day, me and my colleagues are going to need to adapt a more Eastern style of problem solving. There are questions involving the sustainability of our planet (global warming) and even society (how will we continue without oil in a world based around a car as transport) that simply cannot, for the sake of humanity, be answered with another quick, "we'll worry about that again in 20 years" answer. Its up to me and many others to consider new problem solving schema and approach old problems in new ways.
