Contradictory levels of meaning and use in architecture involve the paradoxical contrast implied by the conjuctive "yet." They may be more or less ambiguous. Le Corbusier's Shodhan House is closed yet open--a cube, precisely closed by its corners, yet randomly opened on its surfaces; his Villa Savoye is simple outside yet complex inside.
Robert Venturi, Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture (1966), p. 30.
