What Architecture Is (Part 1)

Here is my little story:

When I was in my first year in Architecture,
I was having a chat with my teacher, his name is Kimnam.
I was really curious (and I am still so) and I asked him:
"What is Architecture?"
Kimnam smiled
Paused for awhile, he answered me:
"I don't know."

Perhaps we really can't define what Architecture is, I think.
Still curious, I asked him again"
"How are we supposed to design if we do not know what Architecture is?"
He frown and said to me:
"That's a very good question.
Even if you have practiced Architecture for 5 years,
You will still find yourself learning something new about Architecture."

That was the end of our conversation.

(to be continue)
