polemic



"Let's talk about architecture for a minute. When people use the word architecture, most times they are really referring to, you known, a building as architecture. But the word architecture in its purest sense has a far broader connotation. So what is architecture? Well, let's think of something as simple as a cup. If you were to specify a particular cup design it would enable the production of identically designed cups. Now if you were to think a little bit more deeply about the design of the cup and extract the essence of what makes that cup,  a cup, and really specify those principles and then share it with other people, you would end up with an endless variety of different cup designs. All of those cup designs though would be based on the same principles that comprise the cup's architecture. That set of principles, THAT is architecture."
