Behaving like human se's, artists and designers type, trap, and reformat current content material. artistic endeavors crystallize out of populations of pictures, and structures emerge out of the dynamics of the circulate styles they are going to house.

In other words, it is a continuous field, experiencing pressure from both site and program. More recently, research into surface intensities among architects has centered on two formats: continuous ramps and differential fields. Even the most recalcitrant of spatial divisions—the articulation of multistory buildings as stacks of discrete floor plates—has been undermined through a tendency to design buildings as continuous platforms that may dip down from one level to another, as in Rem Koolhaas’s New York Prada store, or spiral up as a continuous ribbon as in the stacks of his Seattle Central Library, which allows the library’s collection to be organized continuously according to the Dewey decimal classification system (figure 7).

Barney diagrams life as a drama of things. The field emblem is not the meaning of his work, but its format.

In their Atlas of Novel Tectonics (2006), they declare, A gross figure- ground distinction, showing structure and infill, for instance, is insufficient. The transmission of effects across a field is impossible when a dialectical relationship occurs from the start. The different zones of structure and infill have first to be described as a field of similarity in order for them to register difference. 32 No single architectural element—like a column—is fully independent under such a system, but rather a “column-function” emerges as densification within a continuous field—a network of varying intensities.
