ESSAY
The Strength of Houses Manabu Chiba
A new spatial image is conceivable, one in which no attempt is made to fit every architectural element into a clear hierarchy; every architectural element would instead be regarded as a structural element. The hierarchical notion that the structure is something that supports the building and is distinct from the building would be abandoned, or else the structural framing would become something abstract and invisible. The works included in this issue are small buildings in which attempts are made to establish a relationship in which structure and space are no longer separated but interpenetrate.
