This is architecture!

Architecture is an art of making- a process of translating an intangible idea into tactile form and space. Here, more than the end result it is the progression towards it that defines the subject- the effort, the thinking and re-thinking, the making, un-making and re-making, the resulting mental (and often physical) mayhem and an unending struggle are what architecture really is for those who practice it, rather than the one singular final product that stands alone with no traces of the processes that shaped it.

And, there is nothing glamorous involved here- the mayhem herein, is banal.
