Chapter 6

What I appreciated the most from the James Stirling building is the use of material in a conceptual mater.  The structure of the building seems illogical because of the way the tower is being supported by such slender columns, and even supported by the glass stair case.

 

The second main point and progression I saw was how the use of glass changes, and use as an intellectual element progresses from a void to a conceptual solid through the sculptural and architectural shapes created with the glass.
