The japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has a different though of how our architecture has to be projected. He believes that there are two kinds of future architecture or as he says two kinds of houses. The nest houses and the cave houses.

The nest houses is how we are projecting right now, houses that have all we need: a bed, a table, a private room, a garden, etc. These houses can satisfy our necessities, giving a comfortable life. The cave houses, Fujimoto says that is how architects has to project the future buildings, buildings where you satisfy your necessities with the resources of the house, using a plain shape as a table,

or an outsite part as a garden. Is going back to the future when de cavemans use to live in caves and huts made of sticks and stones and they use the resources of the places to get comfort in.

Fujimoto has projected houses with the nest concept that represents the primitive future of the future architecture.

- Future Architecture

Starchitecture is based on will not in why. The sunset effect is applied to those buildings that praise sculpture more than functionality. This type of project jeopardizes every type of adaptation between surroundings and persons. Starchitecture nowadays is mocking and disrupting the ancient art that was before. Architecture can be a social art, but that means society must embrace it, commission it, and build it. So on the other hand we can see architecture as a way for individual expression. Individual talent, whether local or global, sees the uniqueness in circumstances that architecture can express.

Believing it or not we have been doing this around the hole human history, starting from the pyramids in Giza, the Greek temples, the great wall of China or even the Eiffel tower, we cannot expect to change something we have been doing on our entire existence.

Architecture is not a franchise, but branding.
