The Treatment of Fractures

We exist with the conditions of the building what we inhabit. This also begins to explain why we favor the appearance of a building restored to its "original" health and suppress evidence of inevitable decline. This state of health reflects the ideal of a timeless order, which classical architecture sought to symbolize and embody. Though we may accept death in our bodies, we have difficulty seeing it in the environments what we inhabit. Feeling the body in the surrounding architecture draws the architecture into the body's temporal nature and the instinctive concern with death.
