A Threshold. A Portal
AbstractThe author presents his interpretation of the meanings of such important elements of architecture as a threshold and a portal. Using the images and techniques of mythosymoblics, ethnography, architectural poetics and phenomenology of spaces and substances, the author tries to avoid functional and typological representation and understanding of architecture.
