Scholarly writing serves the spread of knowledge. Prerequisite for this is the curiosity, desire, and urge to know something more or to better understand something or a situation. This may be an interest based on pure findings (basic research), whose immediate usability is not foreseeable, or an interest in knowledge (applied research), for which the prospect of useful application is the catalyst and driving force. Architectural theory has stakes in both fields of scholarship, in that it is the critical reflection on the construction and constructed works of architecture, as well as the critical reflection on the cultural function of architecture in a dynamic cultural field. Today in modern society, architecture is not possible without critical reflection, in the same way that in modern societies, culture without cultural reflection would be precisely the barbarism against which it seeks to differentiate itself.
