Symbols of the City
Man’s geometric impact on the landscape rises as the significant vertical on the city skyline. Personified in skyscrapers, high-risers, towers, steeples, domes & turbines, each upright is rooted in both striving & survival. In contrast, landscape forms a horizontal intersection with man, rooting his architecture and yielding to his ground plan. Together the vertical and horizontal delineate a cross, revealing the pivotal intersection of man and earth.
