Buildings do not just happen

28Jan14

They are the products of a peculiar combination of artistic vision, money, political wherewithal, and engineering skill. Still, when we strip away the layers of real estate finance and zoning and construction and politics, and get beyond the arguments about what kind of environment is best for educating people, or healing people, or housing people, we are left with the reality that a building is an object. That is what buildings are: physical objects with walls, floors, ceilings, roofs, doors, and windows, which look a particular way and function a particular way. Evaluating only how a building looks as a physical object, is pure non sense.
