About Geometry of the Unconscious
The experience of seeing space in its relationship with matter is inherent in the gap between the visible and invisible in architecture. This book examines architecture where the complexities of chance, atmosphere, situation and circumstance are amalgamated into geometry of the unconscious. From this, new architecture can be realised not only based upon accepted norms of modernity but also upon cultural context and origin. Such geometry is an endpoint that involves a continuity of perception, conception and action.
