Physical Common areas at the heart of any building complex.

Broader Nested levels of accessibility; Partially contained interfaces; Focal centre of a complex structure; Patterning integrative superstructure; Common external context for inactivity; Extended pattern of nuclear interaction; Context for emergence of new perspectives; Contexts for care of premature perspectives; Orientation of domains to receive external insight; Hospitable contexts for perspectives in transition; Minimal context interrelating mature and emerging perspectives; Organization of structure to enhance autonomy of sub-structures; Harmoniously structured entry point for external communication media; Integration of perspective acquisition and perspective maintenance dynamics.

Narrower Domains of insight; Flexible domain organization; Domain for developing perspectives; Organization of inter-domain dynamics; Coordination of perspective nourishment; Limiting length of communication pathways; Sequence of viewpoint loci within a structure; Hospitable domain for perspective nourishment; Appropriate proportions of perspective contexts; Relatively isolated context for each perspective; Hospitable non-linear domain external to structures; Appropriate configuration for perspective interaction; Organization of structure to provide occupiable sites; Integrating coordinated exposure to irrationality into structures; Organization of structures to permit two sources of external insight; Relative isolation of structural interface with communication pathway; Maintenance of source of direct insight within structures as a focal point.
