A wise veteran — I
An excerpt from the article is given below:
Prof Haider inverts prevalent paradigms with remarkable finesse and dexterity. Architecture is generally regarded emblematic of a culture, which is perceived to be a larger social reality. But Prof Haider turns the notion on its head, saying, “Architecture makes culture possible. A house is made to assert existence. Its form is a declaration of a view of life. Tools are created, not merely used. And form is given, not merely executed. In this sense architecture becomes the stage as well as the choreographer of culture.”
