Architecture is greater than the architect

Practice means to perform over and over again, in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired. Indian tradition offers us the same through the notion of sadhana: a rigorous, immersive, repetitive and ego-transcending practice that leads you to realization of the divine. Every day of an architect's life should be a day of sadhana. Let us place before you nine lessons that will illuminate you:

Lesson No. 1: A graduation ceremony is much more than either a formality or a celebration

Lesson No. 2: Architecture is a discipline

Lesson No. 3: Architectural design is much more than a problem-solving exercise

Lesson No. 4: It is the work that speaks, not the architect

Lesson No. 5: Theory and practice work best when they contradict each other

Lesson No. 6: You are unique

Lesson No. 7: Drawing by hand is important

Lesson No. 8: We learn by doing more than we learn by knowing

Lesson No. 9: Architecture is greater than the architect
