Architecture is the physical presence of the principle of Cause and Effect. It transforms social processes into aesthetic values and bridges the gap between history and now. That is any form of intervention or event in a spatial context will produce a certain response in the form of an action or another event.
Architecture is responsible for the spatial framework and designed context in which actions and events take place, thereby architecture will effect a certain use and quality for the appropriation of space.
Architecture is not just like kicking a ball, it is (and was always) embedded in a political, social, economical and ecological context. It is the formed background where the differences between needs and wants are spatially negotiated.
Architecture is a way of thinking and a reflection of the surrounding material world. Within times of austerity and a critical reflection of modernity, knowledge, experience and imagination are essential for the everyday practice of architectural design.
