>>>the major difference between my concept and his concept is that I exclude the green-jungle-Tarzan for any project :))) 

And now, onto my "green". I haven't the intention to do anything definitive here more point out the various different ideas that have led us to where we are today... in the beginning of the architectural orders there was 1 capital, and it was “green-acanthus”: Corinthian Order, to be precise...

Look up Louis Sullivan and spend the rest of your winter trying to figure out his unique designs.

Makes Corinthian columns look like a bunch of weeds.

Peter - that also brings me to the point that architectural details reveal the architect's intentions and his method.
Architects typically use either "inductive" reasoning, that is thinking forms from details to a general principle, or "deductive" thinking, that is resoning from a principle-project to various potential single elements...
Sullivan versus Hadid?
