    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Architecture Puzzler #495

    You're at a construction site and about to climb the builder's extension ladder to the parapet 20 feet (6.1 meters) above. You notice the base of the ladder is about 5 feet (1.5 meters) from the wall. Do you leave it there or do you ask the builder to move it out from the wall another 18 inches (46 centimeters) or so?


     

    Question from Last Week:
    Architecture Puzzler #494

    Which three of the following quotes are by Tadao Ando?

    A. "...the temple is made of wood. The divine spirit inside the building is eternal, so the enclosure doesn't have to be."

    B. "Deep experience is never peaceful."

    C. "It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance... and I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process."

    D. "People tend not to use this word beauty because it's not intellectual — but there has to be an overlap between beauty and intellect."

    E. "When you look at Japanese traditional architecture, you have to look at Japanese culture and its relationship with nature. You can actually live in a harmonious, close contact with nature — this [is] very unique to Japan."
