My name is Derrick Riley. I’m twenty-one and a Kansas City native. As an architecture student, I’m studying at the Savannah College of Art & Design. I’m a sucker for simple things done exceptionally well – everything from BBQ, a good pair of jeans, an old oak floor, and a great cup of coffee; I hold immense appreciation toward craft, especially that of the Japanese and hard-working Americans.
This blog was created for my Contextual Research Methods class, but hopefully will continue on after it has finished. I seek to challenge the notion of thought, of architecture, design, and philosophy. ‘Nous’ is a Greek term, defined as the power of thought and perception. I hope these posts challenge your own perceptions on things, on space, and on the world, and in turn, that your responses challenge mine.
Also, cat videos are my weakness.
