Te Institute for the Discipline of Architecture
shelter for Architectural Outcasts
The Institute for the Discipline ofArchitecture is a place within the city where Architectural ideas are researched, built, and tested.
The institute is driven by curiosity and desire. It tries to bring Architecture back into a realm of mystery and ideas, to a time when it touched one's soul and opened theit spirit. It is a place to explore the essence of Architecture as a time when Architecture's direction is in a state of flux. It is a place in the city where people who do not fit into the "status quo" can come and explore their ideas. It is a home for the homeless.
It chases Architecture to its limits
It is relentless
It borders on madness
It never lets up
It puses on when others stop
It strives to understand that which we do not know
