Darab Diba – My intent in this writing is to unfold hidden layers of thought; to engage issues that touch on architectural space when interrelated concepts such as technology, structure, form and culture intersect.
We are living in a world where all matters are becoming related to each other. No intervention can occur in isolation, a perpetual empathy exists between facts. Collision as a metaphor plays an inherent role as a physical or synthetic manifestation. An architectural endeavor always acts as a mediation of interference to other topics, developing taxonomy of collisions in the miscellaneous layers of the corporate components. It is the archetypical collusion of site horizon where the earth meets the sky. This interference, this dialogue is the quintessence of the architectural thought which becomes antithetical to any form. Talking about certainty Kierkegaard 1 wrote “… take paradox away from the thinker and you get the professor”; the one awful person who lives to tell others what to do. Paradigmatic models, essentially archetypal, do not unsettle. Ambivalence is fundamental to the spirit of thought; its gives birth to the unknown, the oxymoron and wit. Antinomies, to survive, need the dialogue of accepted animate discussions, not the monologue of an advisor of all trades. Beware the one way discourse of a so called methodologist, whose everyday bread is condemnation of others, fearing the virtual infinity of ideas that open outwards. What we call form and what we call substance are often identical, one being the exterior of the other, form being substance rendered visible. Willingly or not, we are always living in a perpetual motion where some sustained hesitancy gives the pace of existing incongruities. We have to deal, unfold and deconstruct the antinomies which have always created the paradox. We can not run away, for a peace of mind for which we have to fight. Spiritual principles and values will always come further to this fight. The synchronization of elements in time and place, defined by momentary metamorphosis, achieves in its openness and tolerance the freedom of a fly where gravity looses its eternal dogmatic dominance. Therefore, this
kind of receptive anticipation can embrace the disparate figures of the complexity of the realized pattern. A new relationship full of intersections is being established perpetuating memories of a new born future.
