Re: Barnett Newman
There is also the notion [within the theory of chronosomatics] that the operations of the mind, i.e. imagination, reenact the (physiological) operations of the body. For example, there is a fertile imagination, an assimilating imagination, a metabolic (creative/destructive) imagination, an electro-magnetic imagination, etc. According to the chronosomatic gauge, humanity in our time operates mostly via a combination of an assimilating and metabolic imagination.

I propose a ban
Render the proposed building with lots of people.
Photograph the executed building with no one present.
Funny that.

Been reading "The Medium of Architecture" in Schumacher's The Autopoiesis of Architecture: A New Framework for Architecture (vol. 1). It's all very engaging, but, because of recent posting in the Parametrics Smackdown thread, I'm going to further pursue reading the book(s) with parametric methodology in mind, i.e., read along but with the additional notion of how the text may change as I implant my own thoughts/ideas (evoked by the text itself) into the text.
This is a preliminary quote from p. 346: "The ability to combine detail resolution with openness to future transformations is the decisive hallmark to the parametric model."
I also liked reading about the "epiphany" moment as presented on 353: "It was during this cycle of working with the action-reaction schema that the author first grasped the power of scripting and associative parameters."
