The EARTH is a sphere, but architects ignore it. Most of our architectural knowledge is still based on pre-Euclidian Geometry: what we consider a straight line has been measured according to the centre of our planet, and it is a perfect curve. Actually, all our buildings are horizontally curved, as well as routes, highways and railways. I would like architecture to react in favour of organic patterns, as they naturally represent the idea of freedom. This idea, as perhaps part of the spirit of an idealistic kingdom, can only be found (as a sort of urban statement) in the way paths and streets are designed in Great Britain, where no straight streets exist, except "The Mall", (strictly pointing the Buckingham Palace, reminding us that a Queen is governing us).
