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.
At KIKUZU we believe in buildings. We believe that a human future on this planet depends upon them, and we are committed to making better buildings available to more people.
We are bringing a vertically integrated model to market which will reduce costs and improve quality. KIKUZU designs will be partially manufactured off-site and delivered in a series of timely packages, which will sidestep a number of inefficiencies associated with normal light-construction techniques. We call them “Kit-Buildings.”
KIKUZU is committed, at the same time, to developing long-term relationships with the forestry industry in order to sustainably harvest wood products that will sequester as much carbon as possible in our buildings. KIKUZU.com is currently under development.
