Post-scriptum. ‘But that is not enough’
The question behind ‘this thing called theory’, asked in architecture but without
mentioning architecture, has a purposeful if not arrogant implication: that architecture
has a theory of its own, or, rather, that architectural theory is intrinsic to architecture, and
an indispensable part of it – ‘architecture’ theory, then, rather than ‘architectural’ theory.
The question is the same as afﬁrming that theory does exist (exists, existed, will exist)
