Here, the word productive does not refer to the ability of a painter or scientist to create something new or original, as in the case of being creative.
Also, it does not refer to the product of activeness, but the attributes of active life. Even pictures and scientific papers may be unproductive, or barren.

The process that is going on in a person, the process that produces nothing, can be very productive.
It is not necessarily tied to the creation of works of art, scientific creation, or creation of something useful.
Productive people animate everything they touch. They create their abilities and give life to other people and things.
The 20th-century architecture, which shows an extremely diverse richness both technically and in terms of modeling, is divided into two: intellectual and rationalist functionalism architecture, and sensory and expressionist organic architecture.
Functional architecture has a very modern character in that it is connected with the possibility of mass production by standardization and fabrication (manufacturing of assembled house parts) as well as rational form, but there are mechanical. Some things make you feel cold.
On the other hand, the trend of seeking more sensory and human architecture is called organic architecture.
German expressionist architecture after the First World War and Antonio Gaudi, a unique Spanish architect with a rich, end-of-the-century feel, can enter the tide in a broad sense.
