Abstract
The objective of this thesis is not only to design a

building or investigate an idea, but also to explore and

learn to appreciate what is truly important and, hope-

fully, to discover that part of truth which may lead us

to a serenity in our souls.

My entire struggle is basically to try to achieve a

comprehension of the order of nature. At some point in my

life as an architect, if I have to build an artifact, that

artifact should remind people of the everlasting merits

of the invisible world and awaken the imagination of

others in the pursuit of truth.

This book recounts the attempt to articulate an idea, one

which I believe to be a part of the order of nature, into

the design environment.
