not an easy book
Superadjacency can result in a real richness as opposed to the surface richness of the screen which is typical of "serene" architecture. Its manifestations, as we shall see, are as diverse as Bramante's layered walls in the Belvedere Courtyard in the Vatican Palace and Kahn's "ruins ... wrapped around buildings" in his Salk Institute for Biological Studies.
At Gloucester Cathedral the superadjacency is contradictory in scale and direction: the enormous diagonal buttress crosses the plane of the
delicate order of arcades in the transept's wall.
