DIAMONDS FACETS


· IN A CHAPTER ‘THE OBLIGATIONS TOWARDS THE DIFFICULT WHOLE’,
VENTURI CALLED FOR “THE DIFFICULT UNITY THROUGH INCLUSION RATHER THAN THE EASY UNITY THROUGH EXCLUSION”.

· THE IDEA NATURALLY LED TO CONCEPTS OF VARIETY AND THE OPPOSITION BETWEEN ELEMENTS, VENTURI WROTE,
“EQUILIBIRIUM MUST BE CREATED OUT OF OPPOSITES”.
WE MIGHT THINK OF HIS RESIDENCE IN CHESTNUT HILL OF 1962 WHICH “ALMOST EQUALLY COMBINES RECTANGULAR, DIANGONAL AND CURVING ELEMENTS”.

· THE CONCEPT OF HARMONY, LE CORBUSIER’S WORDS ON ESTABLISHING SPIRITUAL HARMONY BETWEEN PEOPLE AND THEIR ENVIRONMENT.

· For Example LOUIS KAHN WHO WROTE “MAN’S FIRST SENSE MUST HAVE BEEN BEAUTY, A SENSE OF TOTAL HARMONY”.
