Invention and Tradition in Architecture

When does tradition end and where does invention begin? And when does invention end and where does tradition appear? Two faces of the present. So as the future is ultimately composed of all its pasts – distant and close – so invention is only a new reflection of all that has been achieved in every man’s action: thus invention is only a new face of tradition. All good tradition was built from invention and successful inventions can only come out of tradition’s good part. Tradition is something we cannot escape. Even when we would like to absolutely ignore it, it is evident in its absence. It is present in each innovation and speaks when denied.
