After attending many seminars by well known and not so well known architects, one thing repeatedly comes to the mind.Most of the stuff that they speak about seem like a whole lot of complex words, which when critically observed doesnt carry the weight its supposed to. Lot of language and little or no content. Verbal articulation is an essential part of architecture, but many times we see the pseudo-architect (who has a degree and is a recognised architect but lacks that "thing" which true architects have) using language as a tool to get his weak concept across to the layman, who in turn is impressed because he cant understand half of what the architect says. Isnt this like some sort of business theory to earn money? "its all in the packaging" might work for people who want to sell their stuff to the unsuspecting public, but using it in architecture seems like a low way of earning a lot of cash. Architecture in the true sense is about innovation in design w.r.t the developing world, and a true concept speaks for itself, not needing all the phoney baloney thats required for a hollow concept.
Any more views on this? (have to collect various student responses abt this)
