Architecture and Human Event: a Theatre for the Consortium
Architecture is an interaction, a marriage between human event, human need, human spirit and built form. Architects range along the line of this interaction from those that embrace the complexity of humanity and struggle with form to those that embrace only form and cause humanity to struggle with the results. Is it possible to stand in the center of the creative tension of this struggle, embracing and recognizing the power of built form to support, shelter, enliven, confront, uplift and even bring transformation, healing and poetic transcendence to the human event and therefore to life while simultaneously embracing the rich complexity, contradiction and paradox of human event which informs and interacts with the place of happening; to recognize and wed the power of both. This thesis is an exploration which questions the relationship of human event and the architectural response to that event. Perhaps it may serve to stimulate discussion of the vital bond between human beings and the places they design for themselves to inhabit.
