Man Between Earth and Sky: A Symbolic Awareness of Architecture Through a Process of Creativity
An engaging and innovative book about Architecture, Creativity and a Balanced World.
At its highest level, architecture is the pursuit of poetic form. As in literary poetry it employs images and symbols to achieve its essence. These are the common language of the psyche that transcends the purely physical.
Architecture is important in the life of every human being and is used here as the vehicle to demonstrate how creativity unfolds. Observing how the creative process works for one person in tangible terms can make it easier for another to understand. The broad aim of this book is to inspire people of all ages to be creative.
The experiential process of being creative is fully explored, from early influences, through the evolutionary development of ideas and forms and, finally, to the reality of multiple expressions. We are made aware of how the unconscious mind is our most essential creative tool.
