Architecture as a method and/or as a discipline. Nowadays, there can be a shift in teaching architecture from defining a specific knowledge inside the discipline or a series of methods that can be generalised and exploited for the practice.
Roots of Architecture: Ways of Research
Architecture for architects and/or for the community. Who is the final architecture user, and how is this reflected in practice? Is Architecture a discipline or a service?
Branches of Architecture: Ways of Practice
Architecture inside and/or outside the wall. Where is the place for the practice? Architecture can be inside the wall or outside of it; it can build the wall itself or be seen as a theoretical application.
Architecture as a discipline entangles multiple interactions between the physical world, technology and the organisation of the cultural and social environment of the profession. In the era of Postarchitecture moving towards an autonomous subjectivity, open up the field questioning the plurality of the discipline: not just architecture but architecture(s).
