The whole notion of understanding good proportions is to understand the form of generosity the building offers.this notion of understanding good proportions = meditative experience that is the choreography of elements to a just begun or just finishing style like god Apollo’s sculpture which is explained to be a position of an archer just finished shooting an arrow
when does a building start to have good proportions its only when it stands in the background and lets the intervention happen by the people .It does not make you weep or laugh but is just a meditatively there performing subtle acts.
And one starts appreciating when the wall , floor and and the roof plane are neither receding away , nor coming closer but are just there at the right place saying “hello “ to you , they don’t try to hug you or move away . these are the building by namita singh ,
SHAKE HANDS and EMBRACE
Other way is to create spaces full of happiness , walls try to talk to you dance with you play with you and you are completely enveloped by its aura and you are in you are in your total alertness, .There is no scope of personal participation but only get moved by the extreme emotional jesture by the space. Such are the buildings by Carlo scarpa
Such is the quality of space that has reached the utmost level of oneness , when there appears to be no communication between the experiencer and the space , as the built is in a space of non duality which the observer does not get conveyed , hence the connect with the space is missing,its like being watchful of a saint in his state of oneness, which makes you feel quiet but you end up being silent only without feeling the impact of oneness
When the elements around are in absolute dialogue with one another in a language that only makes you feel amazed, but there is no connect experienced again like the previous case, it is like watching a French movie, you realize something great happened , but do not know what happened
