Architecture can defy nature and our perception of natural things surrounding us.
It can slice; filter or make the sky bigger by reflection. Beautiful, really.
It can have a statement of its own regardless of what it affects.
Are we searching for a Sculpture-Architecture?; or are we trying to create in order to shelter the ones in need? Are we trying to build and not destroy everything around it?
When I went to architectural school; never put a brick or a wall together with my own hands; it was not on the curriculum, that I can recall of course. How is that?. I can compare this to a surgeon coming out of Med School not even trying to use a scalpel before. I guess that is where the deficiency starts.
