We have neglected the gift of comprehending things through our senses. Concept is divorced from percept, instigating thought to stray among abstractions. The inborn capacity to understand through the eyes has been put to sleep and must be drastically reawakened. The main thesis of this short essay is that the appearance of things depends on its place and function in an overall pattern. All perceiving is also thinking, all reasoning is also intuition, and all observation is also invention. So, the architect’s conceptions are an instrument of life, a refined way of understanding who and where we are.
