Ching: context & technology

“Architectural form occurs at the juncture between mass and space.  In executing and reading design drawings, we should be concerned with both the form off the mass containing a volume of space as well as the form of the spatial volume itself.  …  Form suggests reference to both internal structure and external outline and the principle that gives unity to the whole.  …  The architecture of space, structureand enclosure, experienced through movement in space-time.  Achieved by means of technology [PART]; accomodating a program; compatible with its context [WHOLE].”

[CHING, Francis D. K., Architecture: Form Space and Order, New York, 1979]
