Stories of Fortune

Prophecies - acceptance of uncertainty extends across all genres.

Time is in a continual state of becoming and our narratives are ever-changing. Architectural composition is never complete and we must strive towards an "endless architecture" and become a world evolving around servicing, information, networking and transience. Building programs shall be sourced from human variables and social requirements while expressing the desires for continual modification and program uncertainty. Archigram quoted in 1966, "buildings with no capacity to change can only become slums or ancient monuments," consequently flexibility and reusability become essential characters of today and of the future.
