Cultural landscape in theory - 1st Part: Centre, core and triangle
The article presents ideas about the close links between architectural forms in theory and practice, as well as the extraordinary ties between the aspects of various disciplines and architectural expression. Common urban places, cities themselves and particular architecture are in their organisation composed from bottom up or the multiplication of elements from top down. The theoretical background of these ideas is presented with the theory of centre, core, triangle and cone. The theory is proved with examples from vernacular architecture.
