Abstract

The poetics of an architecture of a moment is explored through design of a contemplative room (wherin the geometric transformation of a cubic base to a cone) demonstrates the rhythmn and proportion of the construction of the room and the relative motion of the sun in the space. The relationship of the sun rays on the walls of the room passing through a reflecting pool are shown using demonstrative and constructive means of descriptive geometry as both the design generator and poetic expression.The composition of the buildings reveals the play of light on form.
