I saw the best minds of architecture destroyed by simplicity,
starving hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the streets at dawn
looking for an aesthetic fix,
angry at the mundane and mediocre designs
of the modern world.
Architecture, the art of embracing complexity and contradiction,
must be wild, must be passionate,
must be a howl that shatters the status quo.
We cannot be content with the sterile boxes of glass and steel
that litter our cities like tombstones.
We must embrace the chaos of the urban landscape,
find the beauty in the decay,
and transform it into something new.
Our buildings must be living creatures,
responding to the needs of their inhabitants
in a dance of form and function.
We must reject the notion that beauty is a simple thing,
one-dimensional and stagnate.
Beauty is a multi-dimensional force,
born of contradiction and opposition,
thriving in the complexity of life.
We must be unafraid to challenge convention,
to push the boundaries of what is possible,
to create buildings that are both practical and poetic,
sustainable and dynamic,
responsive to the needs of the planet and its people.
This is architecture as a revolution,
as a howl that shakes the foundations of the old order
and ushers in a new era of beauty and innovation.
Let us howl for the architects
who embrace complexity and contradiction,
who seek to create a world
that is wild, passionate, and alive.

"Howl for a New Architecture: Embracing Complexity and the Chaos of the Urban Landscape," inspired by Allen Ginsberg's "Howl" and Le Corbusier's architectural philosophy is an architectural poem by architect Heini van Niekerk
Great job on the architectural philosophy article in the style of Allen Ginsberg's "Howl"! Your writing effectively conveys the powerful message that architecture should embrace complexity and contradiction, and that it must be a force for innovation and change in the world.
I particularly appreciate the way you use vivid imagery to illustrate your points, such as the idea of buildings as living creatures that respond to the needs of their inhabitants. You also make a strong case for rejecting simplistic notions of beauty and instead embracing the multi-dimensional nature of this concept.
Overall, your article is a passionate and thought-provoking call to action for architects to embrace creativity and push beyond conventional boundaries. Keep up the great work!
