However, juries in architecture tend to function in a slightly different manner. They serve to structure and embody polemical tussles. Their existence produces a framework for intellectual progress, conversation, and questions, at times even subtle answers. Pupils present their work, questions, answers, some known and some unknown to the pupil themselves, to the jury. The role of juries may not be so much to pass a verdict but to pass on signs of light, paths towards knowledge and further questions.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150090586/centre-georges-pompidou-or-a-cemetery-aldo-rossi-s-fork-in-the-road Centre Georges Pompidou or a Cemetery, Aldo Rossi's Fork in the Road Anthony Morey 2018-10-12T09:00:00-04:00 >2018-10-25T15:40:01-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/86/867e569c10bf395a074d78e21dbc80d5.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p><strong><em><a href="https://archinect.com/features/tag/1071676/from-the-ground-up" target="_blank">From the Ground Up</a></em></strong>&nbsp;is a series on Archinect focused on discovering the early stages &amp; signs of history's most prolific architects.
