It is high time, we free architecture from a limited understanding. It can be a useful tool too. To connect life, to strengthen mental health, to enhance culture, to mitigate conflicts, to enrich the ground, or just to ensure the basic but very important needs to have a bit better quality of life. Which depends on the resolution. Some use spirituality in their practice, some like to see it as art, while others think straight rational. But one thing is common, everyone works to achieve a better way.
