First impressive question of the article is one of those things that must be answered. Do we have the right to build on the Earth? The Earth that’s not ours and the soil that we offer destruction in order to enrich human life. We have to perceive why we build up and why we’ve made since the beginning of history. We sheltered in caves because we needed protection, have built houses because we were weak. We have built palatial and trivial, big and small, large and huge buildings with a variety of technology and all of them just to protect us and not to be afraid of failure. We are not superior impose and shouldn’t think we deserve doing anything.
Bertolt Brecht’s story “Mass behalf against violence” reminds us of different aspects of human relations and the architecture and some other issues in our society.
We are still constructing our houses, roads, bridges … on other creature’s homes while insisting on being the superior power of all.
Each building would have to be the presentation of all affecting phenomena and every item that formed it. Otherwise, the building is a thing with nothing.
