KOANS AND ARCHITECTURE .

 

 

LIKE THE THEORY OF KOANS WHICH EXPLAINS ABOUT SCRIPTURES IN THE FORM OF HILLARIOUS STORIES NOT COMPLTELY TRUE IS BASED UPON THE LOGIC OF “ SAY NO TO MEANING” AS THE TRUTH IS UNKNOWN AND EVERYTHING AROUND IS EVER EVOLVING , SIMILARLY IN ARCHITECTURE ONE HAS TO CREATE MUTANTS LIKE ZAHA, DOSHI , MOHE, SCARPA ETC . WHERE THE MIND SWINGS BETWEEN ( REFER ESSAY WRITTEN PREVIOUSLY).DIFFERENT ENTITIES ( HENRI BERGSON’S DEFINITION OF DURATION).

THESE ENTITIES ARE THE CO – EXISTENCE OF TWO WORLDS AT THE SAME TIME , AS A RESULT MIND KEEPS SWINGING BETWEEN THE TWO TO KNOW THE REAL AND ON MULTIPLE  ENCOUNTERS WITH SUCH EXPERIENCES TENDS TO GET ENVELOPED AND CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE AROUND HIMSELF, AS HE IS NEVER ABLE TO ARRIVE AT THE REAL, HENCE THE RESULT IS TIMELESSNESS. A PATTERN OR THE FORM LANGUAGE WHICH JUST GIVES YOU CLUES TO GET CONNECTED TO THE TANGIBLE OR THE INTANGIBLE . AND THIS BEGAN TO HAPPEN IN THE MODERN ARCHITECTURE WHERE THE ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS WERE MADE ABSTRACT .

 

PREVIOUSLY IN THE CLASSICAL FORM , THE DEFINITIONS FOR THE ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS WAS STRICT AND THE RELATIONSHIPS AMONGST THEM WAS VERY PARTICULAR , HENCE THERE WAS A NOTION OF STILLNESS , UNLIKE IN THE MODERN ERA WHERE THE NOTION OF SLOWNESS BEGAN TO TAKE PLACE, MOVEMENT WITH TIME AS THE FOURTH DIMENSION IN THE CUBIST ERA WAS CONSIDERED TO BE APPLICABLE IN ARCHITECTURE AND NOT ONLY IN VISUAL ARTS
