Anything that has been made can be made better. There it is: the things I believe are of important architecture.” With this statement, both architects have allowed their own techniques and personalities to take part in their designs to innovate new meaningful architecture. Though what they do may be different, how they take on their projects share some similarities. Theories become a major aspect when it comes to the ways of Libeskind and Rossi. Aldo Rossi is another influential architect, who has been recognized for his architectural drawings and theory.
But there are still relations to geometric space concepts. There is a need of new geometric background for architectural design. • Mythology and anecdotes based concepts Architectural mythology means the symbolism of real-world architecture, as well as describes the importance of vastu Shastra in architecture. • History and context based approach to
Deconstructionist architecture must start from deconstruct the construction at first, with a name indicates its schemes, its intuition and its concepts, or its rhetoric. Deconstruction also contains an insight of fundamental importance for the historian¡¦s conception of what he or she is doing. It uses theory to understand history, and history to understand the theory to construct a more perceptive view of the cultural and social. As deconstructs a structure, it strictly meets the terms of architectural construction and the philosophical construction of the concept of architecture. Therefore, deconstruction is understood to be un-problematically architectural, as it combines with the idea of the system in philosophy, and theory, also the practice and logic ... ... middle of paper ... ...re of architecture.
For example a collectivist society would not strive for total autonomy like people in Western society. In conclusion, therefore, all the definitions of abnormality are limited by cultural problems but to different extents. This cultural division problem means that experimentation is limited to one culture and therefore conclusions of investigations cannot be generalised effectively to incorporate many different cultures. Therefore it is difficult and possibly very inaccurate to judge people from other cultures by our standards and to class them as abnormal because of this.
Cultural relativism also causes a division amongst the various societies because this would imply that we would not be able to come to an agreement when it came to moral decisions. One of Rachel’s main point addresses the justification of Cultural Relativism is invalid because there is an implication of “rights and wrongs are only matters of opinion.” (Sher, 153) Opinion is not equivalent to truth, therefore there is no truth factor as to what is right or wrong. Rachel’s is not completely opposed to Cultural Relativism but simply differentiates the possibilities of what may occur if we were to take Cultural Relativism too seriously, there is likely to be consequences as he has stated. (Sher,154) It would be a flawed system, in where we would think everything in our society was perfect, hence there would be no room for such
This, however, can suggest that citizens of a lower financial standing can be effectively 'bought out', or 'manipulated' (Arnstein, 1969) into a decision. It is also possible that providing incentives for participation could impair genuine judgement, through creating bias towards the incentive holders. Although the article is not specifically architectural, the ideas regarding the involvement of users in the design process are still relevant, and a wide range of theories can be considered to assist further research. To summarise, it is evident that power plays an important role in participatory architecture and should be met with suspicion. On one hand it allows those in power to further assert their dominance over those they are posing to help, be that through expert knowledge, financial standing or social views.
The spaces being created, have traces of the atmosphere and images which have been experienced by the him/her. It is with geometry that architecture is capable of defining these spaces and helping us understand them. Whether we ask about the originality of created space like Derrida or even challenge the authenticity of that idea or space in architectural drawings, after construction, we are encouraged to acknowledge the magical power residing in a fully developed and completed creation. Being Aware of their impact, architects create with notions on other disciplines as well. Hence there is so much to be learnt with the upcoming technologies that the probability of falling behind would constantly cast its shadow on architecture.
Due to the lack of support of assumption of the dichotomy, this theory lacks support.

Although it encompasses many theories that very may well be effective in each of the entities, the theory as a whole is not ideal and too vast to apply for solid organizational management. A more concise theory may be sought in order to clearly manage the public and nonprofit organizations. Each theory explained in Frederickson’s book has its flaws and will be contradicted by another scholar’s findings one way or another.
Most designing today is based on the actual structural appearance one will perceive from the exterior, rather than the functional use of the interior; although both are taken into consideration. AutoCAD is a design tool that can take many different paths. Due to demand an outside appearance is needed to be created first. AutoCAD is a tool that allows an architect to create an exterior elevation first, before an actual floor plan is even developed. ArchiCAD, however, is very similar to AutoCAD but because of its limitations, some things that should be simple and intuitive are actually quite tedious.
It is during this dramatic shift in thinking that the role of architecture to society and the idea of progress and truth becomes a more complex relationship. How this relationship works and its implications is based on the theory that there is a direct link between the two. One cannot develop without the other. Who leads whom and to what extent they influence each other is evident in architectural trends and pioneering works by architects such as Robert Venturi, Frank Gehry amongst others. To understand if and how architecture has had an influence on the way people think and act in the past is an important aspect of questioning architecture’s influence today.
