Profusely illustrated with nice circumstances of architectural experimentation in the course of the centuries, Experiencing structure manages to express the highbrow pleasure of brilliant layout. From teacups, driving boots, golfing balls, and underwater sculpture to the villas of Palladio and the fish-feeding pavilion of the Peking iciness Palace, the writer levels over the less-familiar byways of designing excellence. At one time, writes Rasmussen, "the complete group device half in forming the dwellings and implements they used. the person was once in fruitful touch with these items; the nameless homes have been outfitted with a normal feeling for position, fabrics and use and the end result was once a remarkably appropriate comeliness. this day, in our hugely civilized society, the homes which traditional everyone is doomed to stay in and gaze upon are as a rule with no caliber. we can't, despite the fact that, return to the outdated approach to in my view supervised handicrafts. We needs to attempt to enhance via arousing curiosity in and realizing of the paintings the architect does. the foundation of useful professionalism is a sympathetic and a professional crew of amateurs, of non-professional paintings lovers."
