    XI. Site Circumstance and Idea

    Each project is unique since it can be very complicated programmatic and structural. it needs an idea or sometimes interrelation of several ideas.

    Description: Concept Illustration of Ian McQue

    Nowadays architecture is consisted of programs and organizers. An idea which is not derived from practical program is required.

    Steven Holl points out when we want a programmatic element to be a symbol then something like a score of music can be the organizer.

    Architecture program and ideas shall be fused in which ideas are principals. It’s in realm of ideas which architecture will be extended.

    Architecture shall lies in its perceptual essence, only then architecture differs in every circumstance and site.

    Architecture shall be beyond limits where IDEAs are limitless.

About this Blog

As the world is developing its way of communication, we, the architects need to be more curious on stuff around us! Rise of different philosophies around the globe, rapid growth in our awareness, transformation of communication types and many more items around are leading the ARCHITECTURE to an absolute new brand of its roots! It is time to ask: are we, the TRANSFORMERS or are we the results of TRANSFORMATIONS of GENIUS LOCUS (the protective spirit of a place)?
