What is this ?!

I just read a review that describes the architecture of a building as excited. Excited architecture – what is this nonsensical term doing in an architectural discussion? Perhaps this is how banal in-the-box thinkers are belittling the term vitality?

Friends, there is no such thing as excited architecture! At best, the excited ones are the critics, jurors or observers.

And aside from that, I want to state that architecture must not be a product.
