Deterritorialization is a norm to the practice of architecture today, it is not an exception but an expectation. Students of architecture, in large numbers will either work in a foreign territory or on a project with which its disposition is unfamiliar. Under this premise, what are the means, and what is the end to the path of learning? In other words, what and how should we convey the knowledge of architecture in a world described by Thomas L. Friedman as "flat"? If the end is to become an architect, is building design the only legitimate means through which to acquire the knowledge of architecture? Or is it possible to learn the form of architecture through other means, one that possess similar but acute focuses? To consider distillation as a way to eliminate preconceptions, enabling one to see with renewed clarity. An unfamiliar process as form of distillation for the fundamental essences. In the architecture of deterritorialized practice, the end is not about producing students with architectural knowledge catered to a local industry, but instead for them to develop architectural intelligence and skills that are transportable.
