” . . . Salk was convinced he had drawn his inspiration from the contemplative setting. He came to believe so strongly in architecture’s ability to influence the mind that he teamed up with renowned architect Louis Kahn to build the Salk Institute in La Jolla, Calif., as a scientific facility that would stimulate breakthroughs and encourage creativity . . .

. . . Architects have long intuited that the places we inhabit can affect our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Now behavioral scientists are giving their hunches an empirical basis….”

– From “How room designs affect your work and mood” , by Emily Anthes, Scientific American

” . . . Beyond such opposites lie the mythical shadows of Apollo’s ethical and spiritual mindscapes versus Dionysus’s erotic and sensual impulses.  Architectural definitions, in their surgical precision, reinforce and amplify the impossible alternatives: on the one hand, architecture as a thing of the mind….and on the other, architecture as an empirical event that concentrates on the senses, on the experience of space . . .

. . . I will attempt to show that today the pleasure of architecture may lie both inside and outside such oppositions . . . 

. . . These fragments – geometry, mask, bondage, excess, eroticism – are all to be considered not only within the reality of the ideas but also in the reality of the reader’s spatial experience: a silent reality that cannot be put on paper.”

From “The Pleasure of Architecture” by Bernard Tschumi
