Going to school for Architecture is like having a baby. When you are pregnant people, even strangers, will stop you on the street to warn you that your life will never be the same, no, they mean it, never ever be the same. And, my god you will be tired. So bone crushingly tired from longggg runs of sleepless nights the insides of the insides of your bones will ache. And, you smile and rub your belly and wander off thinking happy cuddly bellybutton thoughts. Then you have that beautiful baby, and its all wonderful except for the ache on the insides of the insides of your bones. People say…So you think you want to be an Architect? You say…Yes. It’s a really challenging program. Yes. There will be a lot of all-nighters! Sure ,sure. No really, you are going to live in that building! Sure, sure. And you go on your marry way thinking mile high dreams about mile high buildings. Then you go to architecture school and its all wonderful, and full of new ideas, and concepts, and wonderful ladies, and its all great, except for the ache on the insides or the insides of your bones!
I’ve been thinking a lot about the iterative process, and I’m jealous of my former self. Don’t get me wrong, I love the interplay of this informs that, the little tweak here, and the complete refresh of scraping a dead end. However, when you are dancing everything is immediate. Right here, right now. You could do it a thousand times a thousand ways in the time it takes to build one model. Waiting for a new idea to be born into the world is like waiting for a baby elephant.
And, on a last note, I propose for the next 100 years of architecture a neo-classical movement of Form driven social engineers…arches for the masses with love!
