The present article starts from the theoretical reflection that supposes to look at the architecture like the manual exercise of a craftsman in the workshop. The direct relationship between the hand and the model, as well as the manufacturing process of this will be the identifying characteristics of an architecture of its own. The relationship of these elements will show the need for a deep theoretical reflection on the contemporary tools of the architect. Fleeing from great eccentricities and complex discourses away from society, the article will analyze some exercises and architectures, always bearing in mind how they show that a good idea developed in a creative context (the workshop) generates optimal results and deep knowledge.
