love this characterization of the perspective shift from creator-as-“architect” (top-down planner) to creator-as-gardener. gardening = setting up & nurturing a generative system without trying to exercise direct control over its output

(caveat: all the *actual* architects I know seem to think more like gardeners than like the architect-caricature depicted here. maybe “architect” isn’t quite the right term for the anti-gardening mode of creation, or maybe I just happen to know some unusual architects)
