The fundamental philosophical breadth of our approach is not only curricular and geographical but also artistic; we refuse to promote a single conception, artistic or otherwise, of what architecture is or might become. We recognize our obligation to the historic moment in which we study and teach and build, but we also recognize that that moment, however unique, is neither singular nor unchanging nor disconnected from the past or the future. Some would argue that in our postmodern era architecture has shifted from an objective to a subjective realm, and that, as a consequence, authority for judgment has passed from traditional measures of function, history, context or even technology to one dominated by psychological criteria, giving rise to a mood architecture obliged only to appeal to the tastes of clients or a limited coterie of aficionados. We are not so sure but we certainly recognize the psychological approach to our art needs to be examined along with those of other specialized, deterministic methodologies. Architecture is never one thing; it is a constellation of possibilities. A university is about open questions and not about definitive answers.
