MANIFESTO #43: ARCHITECTURE = INTEGRAL PHENOMENA
"There is no better tool with which to design the link between mind-body and environment. Architecture is the most effective instrument for reconstructing relations between our species and the earth. The mind must not be separated from its phenomenal senses via the body, which should not be separated from the phenomenal power of architecture. The study of architecture is simultaneously scientific, psychological and intuitively poetic.
The link between mind-body and environment is today a territory of new focus; we can scientifically argue the timely importance of architecture as an integral phenomena. Humans belong to thinking and reflecting species whose behavior affects all species on the earth. The crucial tool —architecture— must be put in futuristic service of a new dynamic linkage of mind-body-environment.
