Is the classic comprehension of architecture, in which tectonic, building elements are the main bearers of the definition and purpose of space, being suppressed? Is the ambition to design architectural elements in such a way that they suggest ambiguous but fixed ways of use, being dropped? Have the perceptional attributes of materials already become too concrete as well, so that the only remedy would be to annul them to the maximum extent, which is either by highly saturating with ornament or, to the opposite extreme, by producing the utmost saturation with whiteness? Does reflecting on spatial purpose allow for the substitution of function with a utilization scenario or working schedule?
