Traditionally, architecture is thought of from a programmatic basis: people have a specific set of needs for which architects design specific spaces. In this scenario, the role of the architect is to create a programmatic layout that imposes its use on the user.
In actuality, the primary way people interact with the built world is through adaptation. The building does not inform how people use it, but rather people inform how the building is to be used; we eat in the living room and make love in the kitchen. Often, architecture is not used in the way that the architects intended. People creatively use spaces and transform them to fit their needs and desires. If we recognize architecture as nature it frees us from the constraints of traditional typology. It will also free the architect from traditional benchmarks of success, such as beauty, efficiency, and simplicity. Thus, the possibilities of what a new architecture can be become endless.
