This piece addresses the idea of discipline in architectural discourse today.

  • “If the discipline were important, we wouldn’t have anxiety about it.”

  • “… architecture is constantly trying to define the discipline within its particular moment and time.”

  • “…a religious psychophantism that’s a possible orthodoxy way of performing discipline.”

  • “… when you are teaching something, […] you have to have a framework from which you are teaching from, it has to be in some ways projective.”

  • “…the plan and the section are so important…”

  • “[…] a big problem at the moment is a lot of architecture students and a lot of architects working in the profession aren’t able to see how […] to leverage things from our body of knowledge and transform them.”
