Assertions on architecture and strategy

#1: A good balance is achieved between architecture and strategy when strategy is biased to the prophetic and architecture to the socractic.

#2: A prophetic architect is dangerous without constraint.

#3: An architectural organisation that is failing often undergoes a Constantinian shift. When it does, membership of the architecture community requires acceptance of certain dogma and new thinking and socratic behaviours are supressed. This is often associated with a rise in the unconstrained prophetic.
