Manifesto

Sunday 15th October § Leave a comment

Given the period that I’ve been internet-ually inactive I missed out on the submissions to metamechanics $100 dollar for 100 words competition, but here’s my belated manifesto in a rough form:

“Architecture is the closest thing we have to a physical manifestation of philosophy.

Every building offers a version of an answer to the question: “How should I live?”.

In the place of words, the architect uses shape and space, materials and textures, and the play of light and shadow, to form a universal language that is instinctively understood by our human psychology.

A master architect is someone who finds what they believe is the purest form for the building, and that will inevitably be an expression of their own ideals. An architect is an idealist at heart. A practical philosopher.”
