Architecture is like science: if you don’t do lab research, you are not going to discover the cures.
In terms of research, it is very important point to always expand the boundaries you learn from you own repertoire, in a sense.
We used to try and invent new rules.
Now we have developed a set of things which we can go back to, a lot of available research we can bounce off.
You have more experience, and you know how to design things better.
And you do not have to reinvent the wheel again every day.
