"my credo"- John Habraken
 
 
Study the field

it will be there without you

but you can contribute to it

 

Study the field as a living organism

It has no form, but it has structure

Find its structure and form will come 

 

The field has continuity

merge with it

and others will join you

 

Because the field has continuity

no job is large or small

all you do is adding to the field

 

Nobody builds alone:

When you do something large

leave the small to others

When you do something small

enhance the large

 

Respond to those before you:

When you find structure

inhabit it

when you find type

play with it

when you find patterns

seek to continue them

 

Be hospitable to those after you:

give structure

as well as form

 

The more you seek to continue

what was done by others already

the more you will be recognized for it

the more others will continue what you did

 

Cooperate;

When you can borrow from others

borrow, and praise them for it

When you can steal from others

steal, and admit it freely

No matter what you do

your work will be your own

 

Avoid style: leave it to the critics and historians

Choose method: it is what you share with your peers

 

Forget self expression

It is a delusion

Whatever you do

will be recognized by others as your expression

don't give it a thought

Do what the field needs
