1. Allen mentions early on in the article that building code and abstract thought delineates from the building site. Does the building site add restrictions and setbacks to abstract thought of architecture and design?
2. Theories and practices are used hand in hand as Allen mentions, and theory is in itself a practice. What kind of theories have been speculated but never put into reality in terms of architecture? Does every design have a theory to it?
3. In terms of film, and or photography, the theory behind the medium is restricted to a camera or a technology capable of capturing light. How restricted is theory and practice in architecture? Do building codes, ADA, and other such regulation restrict the boundaries of abstract thought and theory?
4. Practice and project coincide when structure is a factor such as Frank Lloyd Wrights dilemma with his envelope/enclosure. When a design has to be altered in order to be physically constructed, is it advantageous to future projects?
