Space And Architecture

  ‘Space’ ideas must be considered the characteristic quality of architecture, distinguishing it from the arts of the painter or sculptor. Our impression of architecture is more than the sensation created by the mere treatment of surface elevations, or even the modelling of mass, in terms of the outward form. The departure in architecture is the experience of enclosed space, through which we might pass with a multiple series of visual and physical impressions. JM
