dc.description.abstractA study of how contrasting architectural elements can create a sense of presence. Contrasts constitute movement, feeling, and energy and are what could be the basis of an architecture that illustrates these principles. The transition between extremes creates a balance. Through the use of contrasting elements such as rectilinear and curvilinear, light and shadow, density and sparsity, transparency and opacity, small and large, light and heavy, and compression and tension, there is a static pulse, where architecture may live.en_US
