A New Vision of Architecture


" In this new view of order we shall find,necessarily,

a post-Cartesian and non-mechanistic idea of what kinds

of statements can be true, a theory in which statements

about relative degree of harmony, or life, or wholeness -

basic aspects of order - are understood as potentially

true of false.




The new view will show us the world as an altogether

different kind of place from the one we have imagined.




We shall then literally, be living in a different

mental universe.


To make good architecture we must fundamentally alter

our idea about the nature of order - about the kind of

thing it is."
