Why Looking Beyond Architecture for Input is Important
Find inspiration from other medias, like books, art or even film. Notice how the narratives flow, how the compositions are harmonized and how different senses are leveraged to convey messages through those mediums. Remember the expression that says “Talking about music is like dancing about architecture?” Different medias and their narratives interrelate (in grand part due to the way we humans perceive through our senses). Take advantage of this as an architect. Use your creative abilities to understand other mediums, as this will help you to refine and expand you creative powers. Many times, creative input is as important as output.
