Environmental ethics and consumerism are subjects that frequently emerge. Most of Gloeckler's projects are interactive, and multi-stage physical manipulations are project features. These carefully orchestrated maneuverings through time and space are the principal design experiences, and visual participation in project transformations permit viewers to fully comprehend design complexity and content. Observing and understanding project deployments help to clarify: unfolding narratives and conceptual intentions, dynamic associations between human motion, body mechanics, and physical objects; and systemic consistency and integration of component and detail relationships. Beautiful assemblage, the art of fitting together, is an essential aesthetic concern. Complexity is deceptive: individual components are precisely engineered for simple function, structural clarity, and/or striking appearance. Invention is a standard. The exterior forms of Gloeckler's architecture projects generally share the simple, direct language of appropriate vernacular prototypes, while the interior spaces are more experimental. Gloeckler's design process begins with intense investigation of site, site context, and relevant history; a dedicated search for a meaningful conceptual origin, and identification of a profound “sense of place”. Design moves forward with a thorough understanding of program needs and client desires. The final product is conceived from the synthesis of all accumulated insights and shaped with an aesthetic focus on beautiful assemblage.
