For what its worth. I think answer lies in the nature of language rather than just in the nature of Architecture. In Hebrew, many “nouns” are also verbs, depending on the context of the sentence. This is because many nouns are a living entities.. a being. In Hebrew “Being” is active and not a static thing. In Greek (western), nouns are thought to be "Things"..., static and absolute (Objective). In Hebrew, things are subjective, only God is objective (and hence never totally unknowable).. In Hebrew, life is a verb...

Perhaps Architecture too is a living thing…
