slow motion magic.
something from nothing spurred on and dragged into the material world by complex magical symbols scrawled on paper.
architecture starts as a dream - a desire. however, the end result is often a nightmare.
most buildings are shit because most dreams are shit.
there is a real brain condition - i forget what is is called - but it allows for the afflicted person to fully realise complex 3d objects (buildings, machines etc.) to be envisaged correctly, proportionately, totally accurately before any drawings etc have been attempted.
nicolai tesla (famous electrical scientist 19th century) had it. i'd imagine gaudi also had it.
It is beleived that this condition is caused by a mutation of the area in the brain that governs dreams and halucinations.
i've got it a wee bit. (hah i wish)
never understood plans and sections me. wanted 3D straightaway gimme gimme gimme

The first architect I've ever read anything on, was Gaudi. I started really getting into my passion of architecture so I went to get some books at the local library.
I read of this Antonio Gaudi dude few months ago; never heard of him in my whole life. But from what I read, it seemed his beliefs in life inspired him to do what he did in architecture.
Antonio Gaudi who believed that, 'if nature is the work of God and architectural forms are derived from nature, this means that the work of the Creator is being continued.'
Gaudi said that God continued the Creation through man, and he (Gaudi) tried to be worthy of this creative act.
