Architecture is romantically mysterious, something that cannot be fathomed in its entirety. The belief of completeness whether in its making or education/practice is unfounded, misguided and even ludicrous.
Architecture is a narrative, a story about the continuity, evolution and intellect of the human spirit. Understanding Architecture is akin to understanding the "Gestalt" of an Era.Thus, Architectural appreciation and development is the prerogative of Mankind and not just architects only.
Architects merely suggest but do not dictate and nothing illustrates this point more effectively than a photograph.
