francesco VALENTE-GORJUP: “Sometimes the structure of a building is designed to reinforce another idea. In these cases the structure is not the element that generates the building’s form. The structure assumes a secondary, supporting role. For aesthetic or formal reasons it may even assume so much of a minor role that it may be for all intents and purposes invisible, inessential to the architectural experience, i.e., pure background. Alternatively, an idea about the structure may be what generates the design, where the building’s structure and form are one in the same. The structure may even function as a didactic tool that is omnipresent at all levels, conditioning multiple scales of the architectural experience. In this case, structure is all foreground” (Jeffrey Inaba).
