In der hohen Bindung von Ressourcen under zeitlichen Dimension der kulturellen und gesellschaftlichen Bedeutung con Stadt und Gebäude liegt die Verantwortung des Architekten. Die persönliche Kreativität enthebt den Architekten somit night seiner Verantwortung gegenüber der Gesellschaft.
The responsibility of architects lies in the high commitment of resources as well as the temporal dimension of the cultural and societal significance of the city and the building. Personal creativity therefore does not absolve the architect from his responsibility to society.
