In the mechanistic view of architecture we think mainly of design as the desired end-state of a building, and far too little of the way or process of making a building as something inherently beautiful in itself. But, most important of all, the background underpinning this goal-oriented view – a static world almost without process – just is not a truthful picture. […]. For in fact, everything is constantly changing, growing, evolving. […]. In our profession of architecture there is no conception, yet, of process itself as a budding, as a flowering, as an unpredictable, unquenchable unfolding through which the future grows from the present in a way that is dominated by the goodness of the moment” (Alexander, 2003: 12)
