I have a project for school that requires me to examine the idea of architecture as a craft. I see this as a two-fold idea consisting of the art side of architecture, say crafting human experience through manipulation of form, space and their properties, and the technical side with aspects such as detailing and structure.

I am interested in anyones thoughts concerning this subject. I would also appreciate hearing examples of architects that had a style that really embraced and emphasized certain fundamentals of architecture such as alvar aalto's style that focuses on daylight, and kahns style or order and primary forms.

This is my list of fundementals i have so far: light(Aalto), order(Kahn), context(Wright), texture and color(Adolf loos) and proportion(San something, the church with the facade that you supposedly can't add or subtract anything to make it better).
