I just did a small competition for Log magazine.  They asked for post card and 100 word text for their cover.  I proposed a folding postcard instead of an image, the text argues why.

Architecture can no longer be truly represented through images.  In a society that is flooded every moment with countless images, architecture has fallen prey to the seduction of the image. But it is a false façade, as images today lack meaning and permanence, those ideas which sustain architecture.

In a society that functions and expands mostly through globalization and the internet, architecture can grow by creating systems of relationships and interactions.  As an active element of a networked society, architecture participates in the global dialogue by generating places where social connections interweave with spatial connections.  Networks, not images, are the architecture of today.
