Experiencing architecture is multi-sensory; it is as much about “feeling” as it is about “seeing”. While we cannot dispute the substance of the form is necessary, we also must admit that it is the void within the form that allows space of potentialities to manifest – even contemporary quantum physicists believe that void is constantly seething with subatomic activity.

One should look not only at the periphery and the content of the space, but also at the underlying nature of the space itself. Without void, form and space have no inherent meaning at all. Void is the essence of space that is always capable of being filled with activities, and imbued with feeling, meaning and memory.

Rationalism is the enemy of art, though necessary as a basis for architecture.
