Architecture: the making of metaphors
Architecture the Making of Metaphors Barie Fez- Barringten, who had been educated in one of the Bau Houses strong holds, Pratt Institute, challenged and combined the two ideas central to the Bau Haus and the entire movement of modern architecture and art; that there was some idea common to all arts; EG. Interdisciplinary Math and integrative education; in the case of the Bau Haus, design theory, construction materials and techniques including all the arts, architecture and design as arts. But what they never answered was what was it made them all in art. His wife Christina was raised in a family of designers and builders in Leipzig, Germany just a few miles from Dessau, the home of the Bau Haus. She was concerned about metaphors and their application to thought and experiance. Christina's and Barie's discussion about their respecive concerns never really synthesized and found common ground until the synaptic revelation that occured to Barie during artist Irving Kriesberg's lecture at Yale University when he was proclaimed that "Art was the making of metaphors" Barie queried that if: A. Art was the making of metaphors, and B. Architecture was an art, then does it follow that C. Architecture too makes metaphors.
