brought to mind passages of early student-days readings of Dante Alleghieri's
"La Vita Nuova", and the Poet's use of relationships between geometrical
shapes as similes to unfold his argument.
Here, those similar
Dantesque geometries, in layered juxtapositions referencing selective apperceptions
of the Client's "persona", establish the spatial, temporal, and causal
co-partitioning of the site, and, contribute to define line characteristics
as well as informing volumetric development. Simple shapes establish
a complex content-- ordered geometrical tracings upon which
a Canadian bush-garden minimalist vernacular takes form; compound-complex
thematic exposition is highlighted by primary euclidian shapes (familiar
kernels enveloped in spatial tensions of varying intensity (as hyperbollic
fields interact with equipollent and trisectical ones, producing amplitudes
of octagonal shaped spatial harmonies which protract the elucidation of
space, and its invisible feminine dispositions).
