Note(s)This essay presents a short study of the possibilities of language as a resource (or material) for contemporary building. It explores how informal language interrogates the formal basis of Classical and Modern architectures and formulates new possibilities in contemporary architectural practice. Includes a glossary of terms proper to Classical architecture, but simultaneously presents new definitions for potential future meanings.
