WorldArchitecture in my sense is both interesting and may be also exceptional. The critical issue here is the prevelant paradigm of architecture of which both the professional media and the educational institutions world over are part of. I mean ideology, tacit knowledge, or whatever you call it is responsible of the so-called star system: The Star-system is a reflection of what we understand when we talk of architecture, or of beauty!

The debt of the developed countries to the rest of the world, on the other hand, is not limited to architectural paraphernalia. Please read my contribution to HABITAT II at the articles section of
The World Arhitectural Heritage is not a less diverting emperialist strategy! The developed should pay for the restoration of the historic buildings if they wish to preserve this heritage. Otherwise, the preservation and restoration architectural reflections of wealth are rather a luxurious preoccupations for the poor, the starving, the dying... Please think of of Africa, or Central Asia...
