The Romanesque arcades on the cathedral at Lucca, the Gothic traceries of the cathedral at Strasbourg, or the interior of the choir at Notre Dame, Paris, the Renaissance galleries at Chambord, or the outside second floor colonnettes of Gaudi's Casa Battló, or the columns in the gallery inside his Casa Güell, are all disengaged and superimposed on contrasting window patterns. The big public-scale and the rigid order outside contrast vividly with the small private-scale patterns required within.
Robert Venturi, Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture (1966), p. 66.
