    This guy hates computers. I understand him though that the hand is the key to developing.
    I guess for our younger youth a Ipad or something will have to do.LOL!

    To get a bit philosophical, in metaphysics using the hand to write or draw is a powerful manifesting tool.

    Peace to Barry Berkus, world renowned Architect, and inspiration to many others, and even those like myself that only sought to become a Drafstman or CAD/Revit Technician. He passed away in 2012. He was 77.

    Im Brazilian, love your work mr. Berkus, there is something I would like to share with you : after discovering the google street view I found out that many places in the world looks ok, even those poor like some asian, african or latin countries, but my country Brazil is extremely weird, caothic, terrible and I wish brazilian cities wasnt so damn ugly, cause they seem caothic, horrible, dangerous even without the slums. Sometimes I get myself wondering how did Brazil get to this situation. I believe that is because we have very few architects in Brazil, and many of them are just horrible, full of soviet ideas, its sad
