The current state of practice has existed in a flux of time and contingencies that the profession demands. The contingencies are seen as practical, financial and logistical forces that hinder the ideological positioning of architecture and its very soul.
The creative soul of architecture which seeks identity stems from its educational leaning towards the fine arts model. This can further be elaborated by Dana Cuff’s – espoused theory and theory in practice. When architects explain and justify their actions, they are presenting what is called espoused theory. However they employ a “theory-in-use” to actually guide their actions. (Cuff, 1992).
IN CONVERSATIONS WITH PRACTICES
I am skeptical about a manifesto – I find it a problem that we have created as architects - these broad sweeping statements. I think a lot of the problems of the world are because of these ideologies, it’s a very white male notion. I think rather you use the practice to discover the “core values”. - I think it has to keep addressing the situation, an appropriate way of going about it as time and context changes, rather than stating an overarching statement which becomes the unshakable truth. Especially in India, where the diverse situations we are called upon to design and deal within call for such an approach.”
