About Architecture...

I love being an architect! It is one of the best things in me and I feel that when I studied architecture my whole personality changed!
There is some kind of charm in Architecture… a noble sense… I just love it…
A couple of weeks ago I saw a movie [My Architect] which was done by the illegitimate son of the famous Louis Kahn in his own pursue to know more about his father…
And I was astonished by how good architecture can change the shape of a society! One of Kahn’s projects is in the Capital of Bangladesh and hearing people’s opinion about the spaces created made me realize how architecture can transform life…
Unfortunately most of the architecture now especially in Jordan and the Gulf countries relies on the concept of building architecture to look at! And here where I think architecture cease to be architecture.
For me architecture is the mystical interaction between oneself and the space around! It is the light… the sound… the appreciation of existence…
Architecture is the stage where events aren’t imposed but spontaneously performed…
Architecture is the good sense of the built environment enveloping environment…
Anyways…
Here are some quotes about Architecture:
[[ARCHITECTURE is an act of design, which creates space and structure for human activity and establishes a poetic dialogue between the built domain and its inhabitants. Architecture serves as a durable contextual symbol of the lives of a people, their spirit and aspirations, and their history]] anonymous to me

[[Maybe, architecture doesn’t have to be stupid after all. Liberated from the obligation to construct, it can become a way of thinking about anything – a discipline that represents relationships, proportions, connections, effects, the diagram of everything]] Rem Koolhaas

[[I call architecture frozen music]] Goethe
