Experiencing architecture, making architecture and teaching architecture all seem to share a common premise – the dualistic relationship between the emotional and the intellectual, the concrete and the abstract. Louis Kahn describes the work of the architect as a movement from something intangible through concrete matter and back: «A great building must begin with the unmeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed and in the end must be unmeasurable».
