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.
