Buildings and cities provide the horizon for the understanding and confronting of the human existential condition. Instead of creating more objects of visual seduction, architecture relates, mediates and projects meanings. The ultimate meaning of any building is beyond architecture; it directs our consciousness back to the world and towards our own sense of self and being. Significant Architecture makes us experience ourselves as complete embodied and spiritual beings.
