Architecture is based on and contributes to the collective human experience. While thus embodying a certain continuity and maintaining unity, it also represents change and embraces diversity. The balance is struck by the interplay between culture, ecology, materials, technology, economics, and function. These both set boundaries as also fuel a combination of the architects' analytical insights and creative syntheses, which are finally responsible for giving rise to the range of built forms. This movement can be visualized along temporal, spatial and functional planes. The edifice of the creative non-rational element must be based on a firm foundation of rationality.
