About Alex Vincent

I am a student of architecture at Cal Poly, currently in my fifth year of study. Last year I left California behind for a year in pursuit of a broader world view: first in the mountainous land called Switzerland to chase sheep, then in Rome to perfect hand gestures, next down-under to learn about how I know nothing, and finally to the city on the bay, San Fransisco. Now back in San Luis Obispo, I'm working towards defining Permaculture in Academia as a tool for cross-disciplinary communication and collaboration.

Aside from learning how to question the world around me, I spend my time in the kitchen, trying to speak to veggies and dreaming of the garden that will soon grow veggies that talk back. One day I hopes to herd sheep and harvest zucchini in Vals, CH.

Other life goals include: write a large collection on the many improbable ideals of a modern ecological humanism while bartering my way around the world on a sail boat; spend time on Cyprus learning to cook from a mother, fish from a father, harvest from a brother, and speak from a sister; go back to school twice: once to learn from those who’s knowledge comes from age and another time to learn from those who’s knowledge comes from youth; raise a self-sustaining family that runs a small bed-and-breakfast on the weekends; and find a place where I can settle into my grave gracefully between a row of herbs and a field of many-colored vegetables.
