I am sitting here, looking at all these beautiful images on the wall and asking myself: is this really all there is to architecture? The beauty of the image? The image, overall.. Isn’t there anything beyond it? It seems that this is as tangible as architecture gets in an architecture school – a sexy image. And thus it seems, at times, to be what this education is about: nurturing our ability to put more work towards producing an image, rather than understanding what there is beyond it. Architecture as a profession of producing images about imaginary buildings.

Is this all there is to architecture?
