    According to Andrés Jaque, architects must develop new tools. Otherwise architecture will lose its relevance.

    Interview with Bjarke Ingels: “Why should a building be judged purely on the grounds of utility? Shouldn’t it also behave like a good citizen?

So it can help a lot when you talk to teachers and students or children.”
