Is Architecture GOOD?

END of Days<br />Those of us who feel that architecture is naturally born; a pure untainted idea, brought out from the ethical reservoir of well wishing and hope for the eternally good, would do well to think dialectically. Heaven is divided into two opposing stables: GOOD and EVIL.<br />The good cannot survive without sustenance.<br />But it remains only at the negative aspect of this relationship from which can be forged a cutting furrow of the new. The good rests on the old pieties; and what is new is always evil; always ugly.

END of Days

Those of us who feel that architecture is naturally born; a pure untainted idea, brought out from the ethical reservoir of well wishing and hope for the eternally good, would do well to think dialectically. Heaven is divided into two opposing stables: GOOD and EVIL.

The good cannot survive without sustenance.

But it remains only at the negative aspect of this relationship from which can be forged a cutting furrow of the new. The good rests on the old pieties; and what is new is always evil; always ugly.
