A fundamental aspect of simplexity is this creative activity. B. The search for simplexity is not a search for ‘simplicity’ but rather for elegant solutions, the external world by producing perceptions compatible with its future intentions, its memory of the past, even if these entail a detour by complex processes. These solutions give rise to a certain and the laws it has internalised about the external world. degree of harmony between the world and the functioning of the human brain and body.
Néanmoins pour moi, l’important est qu’il n’existe pas une seule forme de la simplexité, mais des formes – à inventer en fonction des objectifs à atteindre et surtout du point de vue du vécu de l’utilisateur et non de l’architecte. Si la trame orthogonale peut être l’une d’entre elles, elle n’est certainement pas la seule à envisager. L’amphithéâtre grec n’était-il pas circulaire ? Un espace circulaire ne se prêterait-il pas mieux à la rencontre, à la discussion, au débat ? Je comprends cependant votre démarche.
You could also tell me that in our inner ear, we have a system of reference for our movements, the vestibular apparatus, organised according to three orthogonal planes and that this fundamental organisation also exists in the visual system. I don’t deny it. The use of orthonormal space is also generated by neural bases. What is most important to me is that there is not a single form of simplexity, but rather forms to be invented to achieve different aims, especially from the point of view of the user’s experience and not the architect’s.
