Light and shadow need not be reinvented. Their complementing unity always constituted essence of architecture, despite all efforts oft he Modern Movement, now in its ripe old age, to sacrifice corporeality for transparency and order for abstraction.

What is more abvious than identifying architectural character from the proportioning of volumes and gaining a three-dimensional shape from tectonic forming?
