It has been said that:
Architecture is an act of conscious willpower.
To create architecture is to put in order.
Put what in order? Functions and objects (Le Corbusier, 1991, p.68).
This is of course true. But what does this order produce? Well, it might be said that in the final act architecture produces nothing. Except what it asks from us. And what we produce in answer can be conceived to be the very essence of sustainability. The production of meaning then is arguably first conceived in our minds, by mixing architecture with sustainability.
