THE INTEGRAL SPACE HABITATION

Towards an Architecture of Space


I believe it is inevitable that in the fullness of time humanity will colonize Space. Integral traditional space settlements will draw on the most profound capabilities of human experience. I propose large-scale centralized pneumatic tensile-lattice structured enclosures that exploit the polyaxial nature of microgravity, and offer a radical revisioning of Space Architecture.

THE AESTHETICS OF THE SACRED

A Harmonic Geometry of Consciousness
and Philosophy of Sacred Architecture


A discussion of the artistic and aesthetic act through which the Sacred might be approached through art and architecture. I refer to the geometric metaphysics of the center and the polar zonagon mandala, and of the field and projective geometry; meaning; harmony; rational number; a sacred metaphysic and aesthetic; harmonic architectural composition; and the sacred geometry of the circle, pythagorean triangle, and square. Profusely illustrated for the architect, artist, artisan or geometer of the sacred.

RADICAL TRADITION

Seven Essays concerning Yoga and Meditation, Traditional Architecture, Socio-Political Power
and the Philosophia Perennis


Global civilization needs a return to traditional principles to survive. Modern society, by denying the spiritual perspective, is now in crisis. But in the architectural discipline, the timely resurgence of a living and vital tradition is taking place. We are seeing a true global gnosis. I term this Radical Tradition.
