In this book Nili Portugali presents her particular interpretation of the holistic-phenomenological world view in theory and in practice, a world view which has been at the forefront of the scientific discourse in recent years and which is closely related to Buddhist philosophy. The purpose of architecture is first and foremost to create a human environment for human beings. The real challenge of current architectural practice is to make the best use of the potential inherent in our modern technological age.
