Architecture is the weirdest thing. its like a science – calculated and physical, and like an art – creative and thoughtful. and in this, it is in constant strife with both itself and everything around it. architecture can only progress through conflict: conflicting its contrary concerns and conflict with everything around it.
There is only war with architecture and the world. the battle is massive, but the gains are relatively minimal. but architecture prevails in its comparative chaos because it understands people, the people just fail to understand it. so we wage on in this war unaware of how it erodes our souls and builds our bodies.
Architecture is the work of angry gods. chipping away at physicality, until everything reaches perfection.
So ends this first post.
