Presents come in boxes, as they used to, and they hold surprises, that, when opened come to light (and are no surprise anymore). We all live in a framework of references, a book of rules that governs our behaviour. In this environment, creativity has little chance. Instead, architects,should have an open mind, and should have the ability to make thoughts that go beyond the written rules, and that are so to say "out of the box". Taking the helicopter view, stepping beyond the borders of the system that is so familiar to us.
