Welcome to Soapbox Architect. A blog focused on architecture, design, and improving the built environment.

As a [insert_php]
$birthDate = “1/30/1985”;
$birthDate = explode(“/”, $birthDate);
$age = (date(“md”, date(“U”, mktime(0, 0, 0, $birthDate[0], $birthDate[1], $birthDate[2]))) > date(“md”)
? ((date(“Y”) – $birthDate[2]) – 1)
: (date(“Y”) – $birthDate[2]));
echo $age;
[/insert_php] year old, I am classified within the millennial generation.

Update on age: The above script used to be really slick, and I was the smartest man alive – where it would always readjust for my age. However, I guess I’m “that old” now – that it’s an unreadable jumbled code script page. Or you can tell this is a really old blog because there is a Google+ website link still at the bottom of this page.

Thus, I offer a younger I did offer a younger perspective of the design world, and hopefully can offer guidance, observations, and transparency to improve the outlook of the architectural profession.

Quotes about Soapbox Architect:

“You’re calling it Soapbox Architect? Uh-oh that sounds like a lot of rants.”

Response to Quotes:

A soapbox is any platform to broadcast one’s passion, knowledge, and ideas. A blog is simply a modern day soapbox, and this is my platform (or perhaps an Eames chair). If you are passionate about cutting hair you might be a Soapbox Hairstylist; if you love fixing bicycles you might be a Soapbox Cyclist. Ultimately, this blog will focus on architecture and design and will be infused with humor and ramblings in numerous ill-fated attempts to improve our built environment.
