Temporary Architecture or the Start of a New Process?

While driving this weekend, I happened upon a Lo-Fi building installation that got me thinking about what we do as architects and designers and how we go about doing it.

A regular, run of the mill warehouse has been converted into a temporary paper art installation by way of a letter-sized, tiled image on paper (presumably printed from a normal, every day printer) and applied to the front facade. It has a very unique, dynamic quality as the leaflets blew in the gentle wind.

I believe that the artist was freed from any expectation of permanence and building performance, allowing them to creatively experiment at a low cost, producing a pure expression of art.

Could this be a new starting point for architectural design and our processes for architectural expression?
