dc.description.abstract"When we go wandering....it is ourselves we desire to have translated into stones and plants, and it is in ourselves that we wish to walk." -Nietzche What happens when a building speaks to you? The structure makes a simple statement. That statement is reinforced by the light, the space, and the primary materials and how they are connected to the secondary materials and the tertiary materials. Attention is given to the scale of a large group of people, as well as to the scale of a man and to the size of his hand. Unlike the familiar image of a machine, architecture retains the complexities of life and is founded on them. It develops in a variety of episodes, situations, and possible conditions. The relative juxtaposition of structured elements (walls, surfaces, structures, windows) conveys a sense of the whole. It is harmonious because it is related to a purpose. It is beautiful because it is a poetic manifestation of life. Thus, a building is a reasoned fragment, the sign of a presence. Its aesthetic is a condition discovered, not a starting point.en
