Architectural form and the mystery of beauty
Architectural form lives a number of mysterious lives that are characterized by different yetsimultaneous temporalities. It has been said that a “secret date” exists between the modern and thearchaic, not so much because the modern is fascinated by the archaic but because “the key tounderstanding the modern is hidden somewhere beneath the timeless and the pre-historical.” Themystery surrounding the intellectual sources in the architect’s work arguably lies in the multifaceted(aesthetic, sociological, political, spatial) relationships it establishes with a multitude of friends – bethey artists, poets, or architects - who are responsible for his development and keep feeding hispractice, even if long dead. This mystery, contrary to what the 1920s Lutheran modernists and thecurrent Dutch protestant practitioners believed and preached, is best left unexplained.
