Lot Essay

"I find in the square specific settings, divisible areas, number structures, possibilities of time measure and rhythm as well as the essential form of color. The square's capacity latent in its arithmetical mean brings forth a reciprocal relation between the outwardly increasing area, and the inwardly decreasing area of the square. This coordination of number structures enabled the archaic people to erect temples and pyramids.”
