Architecture as permanent change?

Permanent change is the only constant in life, claimed already Heraclitus, and today’s reality seems to confirm his vision of a world in flux. Architects therefore try to distinguish between what appears lasting in their discipline and what is transient and fleeting. But can we speak of metamorphosis as the “essence” of architecture? Can the never-ending cycles of transformation ensure the regeneration of architecture after cycles of crisis?
