Common Ground

Michael Corr

‘Contextual reading is not just data gathering, a linear process leading automatically to proposals, but a creative building up of a picture that gets developed in various simultaneous ways’ David Brett, A book around the Irish Sea.

In his book around the Irish Sea, the architect and explorer David Brett, sets out to find ‘the underlying consistencies that bind communities together’ and identify ‘the rhythms that moderate their development over time’. Thinking about ‘communities of practice’, I have set about that task in a similar way, first analysing the context and then trying to uncover common ground between things.
