I'm not sure whether you're using 'spelling' as an ironic metaphor or whether you've simply completely misunderstood my post.
All I'm saying is that architecture cannot stand on it's own, whether functionally, aesthetically or technically or any combination of these three, if it does not have some larger social concerns beyond merely making money and respect for those who use it.
Read Super-Cannes by JG Ballard. It's a terrifying metaphor for the times we live in, the expectations placed on our art and the consequences of a lack of an ethical core. Or consider Liebskind's tragic abstractions, remarkably vapid in one with his history.
