Declan Kennedy, (1985)
I am an architect and urban planner. After a few years in private practice, I was downright disillusioned as to the quality and verity of the type of work I was supposed to be doing. At this point, I came in contact with EKISTICS for the first time and decided to attend the Athens Ekistics Month in 1964. I guess it was my Irish fondness for argument that caught Jacky Tyrwhitt's attention, but right from the first meeting on the first day of July 1964, we seemed to find a rapport with each other, both being able to voice our own opinion. I was so fascinated with the concept of Ekistics that I did the complete submergency system. I decided to take this idea and work on it for the next few years - maybe for my life. I revisited Athens the following two years for the International Seminars.
