ArchDaily recently spoke to Ben van Berkel, co-founder and principal architect at UNStudio, an international network of specialists in architecture, urban development and infrastructure based in the Netherlands.
What is architecture?
"Architecture is just background. The beauty of architecture is that it brings people together and can create public constructs. Once you know how to make this work you can also make it attractive, not only in its image but also in it’s after image. It becomes something that people can come back to and reanalyze."
Is architecture a profession or a discipline?
“It’s a discipline. For me, talking about it as a history, a series of skills, theories or philosophies is part of the progress of architecture. Of course it is a practice and a profession, but the idea of practice is something different from discipline. It deals more with how architecture is taught.”
