The manifesto of FAR

As an adjective-distant and an acronym as an architecture for the real

Group of people Interested in the quality of the built world and the role the construction can play in
bringing that about

We want to be very utopian yet pragmatic otherwise there will be no architecture of the real

WANT TO DEFINE MATERIAL SOLUTIONS TO BUILDING ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGES THAT ARE


GROUNDED IN HISTORICAL SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC REALITIES

In this context architecture and construction cannot be separated

Concerned with construction of efficient architecture

And by efficient we mean architecture which provides us with a meaningful framework for social
activities and an efficient rival investment

Within the laboratory there is no distinction between basic and advanced technology or high end or low
cost solutions

What counts is our ability to understand the manufacturing process of any programme in its spatial to
cultural to economic dimensions

Principles that guide our analysis of design propositions

Our Intent BE defined

efficient in the use of resources employed

Ethically allocate resources to a programme

To demonstrate the concern we have about the design choices, FOR THE WORKERS AND THE USERS, TO
ANALYSE AND ENVISION TRIGGER ENABLE POSITIVE CHANGE IN THE ENVIRONMENT

THE ACT OF DESIGN CANNOT BE A METHOD TO ARCHITECCTURAL FORM OR BUILDING ENGINEERING


RATHER IT MUST PROVIDE THE ENTIRE PROCESS OF THE TRANSFORMATION THAT HELPED IN THE
ADAPTAION TO MAIN SOCIAL ORGANISATION OF PRODUCTION

TECHNOLOGY IS A MEANS TO THIS WILL AND NOT AN END IN ITSELF

TOOLS AS TESTIMONIES OF COLLECTIVE CULTURAL IDENTITY AND SOCIAL INGENUITY OF INDIVIDUAL


ASSOCIATIONS OF HAND TO MIND

EMBODY 2 THINGS AT THE SAME TIME

CONVENTION AND INNOVATION

INTIMATE A RULE OF ART

ASTY TO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO


INTERESTED IN THE CAPACITY TOOLS TO BECOPME INSTRUMENTS

VISON HABITATION COMMITMENT

BUILDING DSING ID THE TOOL WE HAVE IN ARCHITECTURE

HOW TO DRAW HUMAN RESOPURCE TOWARD US

ANOTHER PORTION OIF THE ENIGMA

PERICLES“INSTEAD OF LOOKING ON DISCUSSION AS A STOUNDING BLOCK IN THE WAY OF ACTION WE


THINK OF IT AS AN INDEPENDENT PTRELIMINARY AS CAPABLE OF ANY WIDSE ACTION AT ALL

DISTINCTIVE ETHOS AS NATURAL MOLDS

WE BUILD THEORY BASED ON EXPERIENCE

WE LIKE TO MAKE PROPOSITIONS AND SPECULATIONS BUT WE NEED TO TEST THEM AND VALIDATE
OUR PROPS

WHEN WE RESEARCH WE HAVE A POSITION THAT WE WANT TO STATE

PERICLES FUNERAL ORATION

WE WANT TO CULTIVATE REFINEMENT WITHOUT EXTRAVAGANCE AND KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT


EFFEMINACY ;

WEALTH WE EMPLOY MORE FOR USE THAN FOR SHOW AND WE PLACE THE REAL DISGRACE OF
POVERTY NOT IN OWNING TO THE FACT BUT IN DECLINING STRUGGLE AGAINST IT

WHAT WE FEEL IS IMPORTANT AND WHAT WE WANT TO DO ABOUT IT

TERRITORY

WHY THIS TERRITORY IMPORTANT AND LET ME TALK ABOUT ARCHITECTURE AS A PROFESSIONAL
PRACTICE AAN THE PLACE THAT RESEARCH HAS IN PRACTICE IS AN INTRINSIC PART OF THIS CHARTER

PROFESSION IS A DICIPLINED GROUP OF INDS ADHERE TO ETHICAL STRANDARDS AND HOLD


THEMSELVES DOWNAND ARE ACCEPTED BY THE PUBLIC AS POSSSESSING SPECIAL KNOWLEDGE OR
SKILL IN A WIDELY RECOGNISED BODY OF LEARNING THAT ARRIVE FROM RESEARCH FROM EDUCATION
AND TRAINING OF HIGH LEVEL

INDIVIDUALS PREPARED TO APPLY THIS KNOWLEDGE AND ENHANCE THESE SKILLS IN THE INTEREST OF
OTHERS

INHERENT OF PROFESSIONS IS THE CODE THAT MUST BE OBLIGED BY THE PRACTICIONERS
