The contemporary is less walls and towers than an enormous communication machine, a manifestation of the opening and domination of space and the connection of humanity. It is dynamic, not static. Its symbols are different, its plastic expression is defined through the elements of this communication, through signs of spatial order and organization, through the three-dimensional manifestations of its supply systems.
