  • Abstract:

    The practice of architecture, much as the human mind itself, would seem to occupy two domains, that of the rational and that of the romantic. The fact of the matter is not that there is a dualism or dichotomy, but rather that these are, in reality, elided worlds. What we usually see in the expressed aesthetic of a design is the predominance of the realm that guides the thinking of the designer, and then not appreciate the subsumed or disguised influence of its counterpart.
