Physical manifestations of time occur in natural forms of all sizes. Architectural form serves as shelter while providing a built envelope of human life, simultaneously influencing and influenced by energetic activities which occur within the containment. Change is either progressive or cyclic, apparently linear or circular. Similarly built form is either discontinuous or continuous, angular or curved. All physical presences, energetic configurations, are fleeting. Physical forms are shaped by time and so reflect the movement of the energy flows through time and space. Specific parts of time-space signify future forms while others revel in the past.
