Henry has a Masters of Architecture from the University of Texas Austin. He is an outspoken critic of the profession's continued obsession with "art-object" buildings. He believes a number of aesthetic and theoretical pretensions must be overcome if we want to build instead on strong, moral foundations. During his time at UTSoA he has consistently argued for reform of both pedagogy and practice so that architecture may have at its heart a true social and ecological mission.
- Owner of KIKUZU. We design shop fabricated, engineered-wood kit-buildings which hybridize modern "pre-fabrication" techniques with traditional building methods to make construction easier, faster, and less wasteful. Ultimately, our aim is close the loop between responsible silviculture and good building practice to make it easy to sequester as much carbon as possible in wooden structures at small to medium scales. Residential construction is far too complex and expensive, leaving owners with little control and often unsatisfied. KIKUZU aims to fix that. KIKUZU.com is currently under development.
