"The first dimension of architecture is a horizontal line: a hand-drawn line that is transferred to our built environment; a person lying down.
The second dimension of architecture is the angle formed by a vertical and horizontal line; at the level of a standing person.
The third dimension of architecture is limited or unlimited space, in which a person lies down or stands; proportions; big / small.
The fourth dimension of architecture is our total experience, which is formed by the interaction between the senses, the feeling of an environmental experience.
The fifth dimension of architecture is time, light that illuminates space, motion in that space, a person as part of an aging space, materials and their aging.
The sixth dimension of architecture is the comprehension of the tradition of building; the history of mankind, the basic requisites of building, the presence of the architectural archetype."
