Robert Black is a local architect, artist and teacher with diverse experiences in sustainable architecture, group facilitation, and avante garde artistic presentations & performances. He teaches creative classes and lectures on various subjects from History through Architecture, to green design, to spirit in matter.

He says, “Brick has always fascinated me. It is a metaphor for life, with associations both mundane and transcendent. It is matter - clay - earthen in nature. Yet, to my eye and mind, it transcends into the realm of Spirit. I am inspired by the symbolism of a single brick in symbiosis with thousands of others. Moreover, the clay used to make bricks is a common material - found all over the world and used by diverse cultures throughout history.”
