In this process we usually discover an incredible precision, with which nature makes the calculations of an ideal geometry, though sometimes it is hidden from us and difficult to distinguish. But through conscious study, great sense […]

In this way composition rules like classicism were established for architectural objects of rectangular kind. But for those objects, which remind us of organic forms, a common criterion of their characteristics has still […]
