Stan
Allen:
From
Object
to
Space 
 I
agree
with
Allen
points
on
how
Architecture
has
evolved
from
its
origins
to
 the
present
day.
Architecture
used
to
follow
precise
rules
on
forms
and
axiality
and
 organization
but
today
these
rules
are
not
relevant
to
modern
times.

Even
though
 we
are
designing
with
ever
more
complex
ideas
the
core
of
architecture
is
changing
 because
of
materials
invention
and
complex
principles
such
as
the
voronoi.
 Architecture
went
form
being
about
the
object
to
being
about
the
space
occupied.
I
 think
that
this
is
a
better
approach
because
you
are
envisioning
space
as
central
part
 rather
that
a
by‐product.
 
 Allen
goes
on
to
say
that
we
need
to
critically
rethink
relationship
of
parts
 and
architectural
elements.
We
accept
the
relationships
that
have
been
set
up
long
 before
our
time
and
take
it
for
granted
as
that
is
the
way
things
without
ever
 questioning
if
there
is
a
better
way.
The
article
also
talks
about
digital
Iields
Iield
of
 data
streamed
digitally
where
each
pixel
is
coded
differently
but
act
in
unison
with
 each
of
the
other
pixels
to
form
a
whole.

This
is
relevant
to
architecture
because
in
a
 building
each
of
the
parts
although
separate
also
have
to
act
as
a
whole
for
the
 building
to
be
successful.
In
it
Allen
also
states
that
we
as
architects
have
to
stop
the
 traditional
top
down
building
approach
and
start
from
the
bottom
up.

This
is
where
 Iield
study
plays
an
important
role
in
the
design
from
analyzing
the
behavior
of
 masses
in
motion
and
the
dynamics
of
use.
I
think
that
this
is
an
important
 statement
because
this
is
a
more
Iluid
way
of
designing
because
you
are
designing
 not
with
preconceived
notions
but
base
on
facts
from
studies
and
are
creating
 something
that
works
and
not
just
for
looks.

 
 I
think
that
this
article
is
very
relevant
for
today
because
it
looks
at
 architecture
not
from
the
perspective
of
a
individual
whether
it
is
the
designer
or
 the
client
but
it
looks
at
it
from
the
perspective
of
the
whole
the
masses
the
people
 occupying
the
space.
It
realizes
that
the
cities
are
pieces
of
lost
orders
and
never
 realized
totalities.
It
is
based
on
these
complex
ideas
that
we
have
to
build
our
 infrastructure
on
and
not
the
preconceived
notions
that
are
set
in
place
from
long
 dead
orders.
The
only
way
to
do
this
is
to
give
up
some
measure
of
control
and
to
 give
extensive
thought
on
how
to
integrate
a
majority
of
these
issues
into
a
more
 uniIied
design.
This
will
further
the
craft
of
architecture
and
help
progress
humanity
 to
the
next
level.
