In the third installment of Architectural Review’s campaign, Peter Buchanan introduces Integral Theory, which establishes a new framework for the design of twenty-first century buildings and cities.

The design behind this book is inspired by Architect, James Wines. I chose to pair the contents of Peter Buchanan's Integral Theory, with works and quotes from James Wines due to their similar ideaologies on sustainable and ethical architecture.


The Integral Theory is a comprehensive theory designed by the American philosopher Ken Wilber and which is based on the elementary insights of several major philosophical traditions in the world. The model below, describes that we can look at our reality through an individual, a collective, a subjective and/or through an objective lens. These four quadrants all reflect reality in their own unique and valuable way. What is very powerful about the model is that all quadrants must be considered and studied in order to have a complete view on reality.

The Integral Theory teaches us that organizational development is always connected to personal and interhuman development and that growth and change of both an individual and an organization is in constant interplay with the environment.


"Everything I was doing before the 60's was thrown out the window. I realized that the more inclusive the art, the more interesting it gets."
