A house is indeed a machine for living, all the parts create the whole. In finding a new architecture you have to disintegrate and decipher the current architecture, pick it apart, find what’s useful, find what’s appealing, and for the greater influence, find the soul. In Corbusier’s form over function, or Wright’s symbolism and mass appeal, there is no finite realization. In modern comparison, one could compare Gehry’s form and massing to the functionality of Rem Koolhaas’s arrangement of functional elements to their useful locations. This past week, we’ve had no air-conditioning in our house, it was missing one of its elements. The absence of this necessity, made an alert in such a mannerism that rectified the overall function of the mechanism of the working structure. Like having no air-condition and thus ruining the building, these architects with their plaguing parts too have ruined their buildings by leaving so much to chance.
