Love, Loss and a World Builder

Today I came across a quotation which made me think of what exactly is architecture, Walter Gropius said that "Architecture begins where engineering ends" it made me feel like this 1978 is far from truth, architecture is more than just finishing what others left.

I’m more in favour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s views of architecture: "The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization"

To me, Architecture is about engaging with the surroundings, using the latest techniques. Architecture is all about amending our world with as less intervention as possible. Therefore, architecture will ease our daily anguish.

Wright believed that "Every great architect is -- necessarily -- a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age"

This Video, is a very good example of what i think architecture is all about, a strange man uses holographic tools to build a world for the woman he loves. This is a short by filmmaker Bruce Branit known also as the co-creator of 405.
