INSTINCT TO METHOD

\n

Here’s how it happens:
Somewhere there’s an instinct .
The culture says\, “no”.

\n

The architect insists\,
resists\,
begins to explore\,
evol ves\;
becomes pragmatic\;
becomes experienced\;
become s system\,
becomes\, method\;
becomes teachable\;
beco mes learned\;
becomes culture.

\n

A practiced pattern of practice replaces the original instinct.

\n

What didn’t exist\,
Fumbles\,
Tumbl es\,
Stumbles
Doesn’t crumble –
Stands\, provisionally\,
Unsteady to steady\,
Unbalanced to balanced\,
And comes to rest as a new pro forma.
Now the culture says\, “yes”.
Too late.

\n

FROM I DON’T KNOW TO NOW I KNOW ….

\n

When I don’t know becomes now I kn ow\,
Architecture’s finished.

\n

W hen last year’s words become next year’s words\,
Architecture’s done.

\n

Style arrives.
