This building consists of many parts.
They all are essential architectural elements-posts, water tanks, lightning rod, joints of various kinds.
But these parts, even after fulfilling their required functions, maintain the momentum of their growth, rising up like so many young shoots flourishing upon a sufficient supply of water and light.

Here we see an approach in which diverse parts, while pursuing their own vigorous fulfillment, achieve an integrity of the whole without being forced to do so from above. Individual autonomy is respected, a theme that befits a building that houses a college.
It represents a new order, not achieved through simplistic control from above but through tolerance of chaos.
This interaction among parts can be expressed using the Japanese word" ma" (the space or distance among parts).
It offers the possibility for transcending the dichotomous principle of modernism that divides everything into two categories, and refuses to accept anything in between.
