What is Architecture?

"Architecture facilitates decision and supervises its execution."

An architect provides highly technical solutions in terms and visualisations that is understandable to the client, so that the client understands to options available to him. After the client has made his choice, it's the responsibility of the architect to make sure that the technical details of the choice are in fact realised within the vision of the client.


Unexpected sounds

When I came home from work last Thursday, I walked through Rotterdam central station, which was supposed to be business as usual. Only that afternoon I didn't see the normal grumpy stream of people going to and fro. Instead a band from the North Sea Jazz Festival was set up on the balcony and was playing like they were on stage in their own smoky back alley club. This created such a good atmosphere that a crowd gathered to just listen and be happy.

That is the power of music.
