 Tech Outlook 2003: Enterprise Architecture eWEEK - Find Articles   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
The architecture of old IT was shaped by expensive computers, obscure and time-consuming application development tools, application-specific data formats and vendor-specific communication protocols—all working within a closed environment in which anyone with access was trusted.
When the IT environment changes, an architecture that once made sense becomes an expensive monument to what used to be; that once-impressive IT monument may fail to accommodate fundamental changes.
An IT architecture need not adjust to every passing fad; there are such things as enduring, even classic, designs that work because they're right, even if they're old.

 2003 Laureate Announcement
And from juror Jorge Silvetti, who chairs the Department of Architecture,Graduate School of Design at Harvard University, “Paradoxically,while the act of awarding in 2003 the Pritzker Prize to Jørn Utzon may be perceived as long overdue, it comes at such a particular moment in the development of architecture as to be timely and exemplary.
In a forty year practice, each commission displays a continuing development of ideas both subtle and bold, true to the teaching of early pioneers of a ‘new’ architecture, but that cohere in a prescient way, most visible now, to push the boundaries of architecture toward the present.
Further, Utzon had studied Chinese architecture which described their farm houses as being completely closed to the outside, but opening onto a central court.

Yale is not an academy propounding a singular vision of what architecture is or should be.
In its diversity, the work of our studios does not represent a box of stylistic tricks, but is, instead, a reflection of some of the very many ways that each beginning architect can explore in order to find his or her own voice.

The resulting architecture from this workshop should help all the current measurement projects see where they fit, how they relate and support each other, and where there are overlaps.

 Sessions for the 2003 Victorian Architecture Conference
Due to fires, floods and eventual great wealth, the early wood framed and clad structures used by the pioneering oil men were replaced by the large stone and brick Italianate commercial palaces symbolizing the institutional permanency of the developed oil industry.

Unlike the European derived Victorian architectures: Gothic Revival, Italianate — Italian Renaissance, and the Second Empire, the American Victorian styles reflect this young country’s immediate past and the technology that shaped its fortunes in the 19th century.
