Fabulation in the Anthropocene

"We have lost what it means to be an architect; we have lost this notion. It does not mean constructing a building. Many people construct buildings, but are they necessarily architects? No! So why are we architects? To define a political-aesthetic condition of construction where we produce something in order to destabilise that habits of a situation. I don't think there is anything else for us, because if we take the job of an architect, it is not for the beauty of the building alone, or for the arrogance of the discourse, or to become that master of ceremonies which so many young egos want to become today, but to question the condition of production and the context of practice."
