not an easy book
A building can include things within things as well as spaces within spaces. And its interior configurations can contrast with its container in other ways besides those of the Villa Savoye's. The circular perimeters of bearing wall and colonnade in Hadrian's Maritime Theatre at Tivoli produce another version of the same spatial idea.
Even Wright, although only by suggestion, contains the interior intricacy of his Evans House with a rectangular envelope implied by the sculptural corner posts.
At the other extreme, the intricacies within the plan of the typical Tudor manor, Barrington Court, for example, are hidden, maybe excessively and expressed only incidentally, if at all, on its rigid, symmetrical facades.
