Abstract
This study began with the desire to design a public town

library of the future and became a search for an inkling of

what is essential to Architecture. It is murky and full of

contradictions. It asks more than it proposes, and the

traces of its windings are better ordered through collage

than logical synthesis. This study is neither a thesis nor a

synthesis. When drawing out the measure of this study it

may be beneficial to state what it attempts to place at the

perimeter. Architecture is not a product of society,

civilization, or economy. Architecture is not democratic,

and it cannot be brought forward in the public realm.

Architecture is not a private affair. Architecture is not

space, and it is not building. This study does attempt to

hold that Architecture is founded in speech and gesture

which originate in culture. As 'constructions' (construings),

Architecture and the book share with the body the

potential for utterance. The library is the coincidence of

Architecture, the book, and the body.
