We experience buildings in terms of their form,their structure,their aesthetics and how we and others use them . This constitues the reality of our physical experience,but buildings not only have an existence in reality,they also have a metaphorical existence.They express meaning and give certain messages,just as the way we dress of furnish our homes gives people certain messages about us.
The dramatic roof lines of Sydney Opera House have been described variuosley as looking like sea-shells and sails.Its phisical form ,in other words,also has a symbolic message which refers to the building's maritime position and to the sailing bouts in Sydney Harbour.
When Adolf Loos enterd the competition for a building to house to offices of
the chicago turbine newspaper,his design took the form of a column ,a pun on theidea of a newspaper column.

bomb,filling the huge vacum the war years had created.
Its effects speard and speard until by now there is no corner
of the industrialized world in which the thin,high,glossy blocks,the

The square
In all probability the square was the first way man discovered of
using urban space.It is produced by the grouping of houses around
an open space.this arrangement afforded a high degree of control
of the inner space as well as facilitating a ready defence against
external surfaces area liable to attack . this kind of courtyard
frequently came to bear a symbolic value and was therefore chosen
as the model for the construction of numerous holy places (AGORA
,FORUM,CLOISTER,MOSQUE COURTYARD).With the invention
of houses built around a central courtyard or atrium . this spatial
pattern became a model for the future.Here rooms were arranged
around a central courtyard like single housing units around a square.
