not an easy book
The concave exterior of Aalto's studio at Munkkiniemi shapes an outdoor amphitheatre. These examples produce residual spaces inside.
Fischer von Erlach's Karlskirche, mentioned earlier, combines a small oval church with a large rectangular facade that accommodates to its particular urban setting by means of a false facade rather than by poche.
The concave facade of the garden pavilion of the Arcadian Academy in Rome is in even more contradictory contrast to the villa behind it. The facade has been given its particular size and shape in order to terminate the terraced garden. In the Sanctuary of Saronno there is contradiction in style as well as in scale between the facade and the rest of the building.
