How, why, where and what inspires the birth of architecture? 

The process of creating architecture is often forgotten and undervaluated, however, it is the key ingredient in the mix of architecture responding to provocations of NOW.

Creative process is as diverse as the number of creators: some architects like drafting others prioritize analyzing; there are rationalists and functionalists. None of the paths is the only right one for everyone, and all paths are in some way true to someone. How do the first ideas emerge? Is architecture the result of an author, or compilated synthesis of ideas from the whole team? What is more important – architectural scenario or the looks of architecture? Love the context or f**ck the context? Which method is of higher value  – creative impulse of the moment, or coherent and cold-minded search of the balance? Does the worth lie only in perfect realization? What is the process between the first sketch and the final result and what else it may trigger?

Meeting our different philosophers of architecture might answer a few questions, but not necessarily so.
