Take of your shoes and walk along a beach through the ocean’s last thin sheet of water gliding landwards and seawards. You feel reconciled in a way you wouldn’t feel if there were a forced dialogue between you and either one or the other of these great phenomena. For here, in - between land and ocean - in this in-between realm, something happens to you that is quite different from the sailor’s nostalgia. No landward yearning from the sea, no seaward yearning from the land. No yearning for the alternative -no escape from one into the other.
Awareness of this in - between (in - between awareness) is essential. The ability to detect associative meanings simultaneously does not yet belong to our mental equipment. Since, however, the meaning of every real articulated in - between place is essentially a multiple one, we shall have to see to it that it does.
Awareness of the in - between creeps into the technology of construction. It will transform not only our ideas as to what we should make, but also as to how we shall make it -including our technological approach. It will be there in the body, the members and the joints of whatever we make... Aldo Van Eyck
