LA MODULORis about female proprotions etc in the grammar in architecture, Of course in history the mens body and mind has been the issue. For example who I studied in Paris was Le Corbusier Vitruvius etc The old grammar in Architecture I call my study LA MODULOR The study is based on observations om my own body and mind and space and time. To me art and architecture connect more and more on an deeper plane inside the human as archetypes I will problematize the research with this examples image of paintings of LA MODULOR (2013 ) but there is also connections in my architecture projects

                                              The apperance of LE MODULOR 1945

I return to Le Corbousier Vitruvius and the old grammar in architecture in a future text what I found relevant for my own study and methods

Samuel Weber on Charles Sanders Peirce 2001
This interpretant is itself split. It operates by reffering to previously established interpretation, and hence is retropestive: but it also, at itself a sign, anticipates and depends upon subsbequent interpretations It is both retrospective and prospective. Considered abstractly, as an isolated process, this process of semiotic interpretation would be unlimited, and hence would, by itself, dissolve in total indetermination

Here the background from Pierce come very important for the relevans
Wikipedia September 10, 1839 – April 19, 1914) was an American philosopherlogicianmathematician, andscientist, sometimes known as "the father of pragmatism". He was educated as a chemist and employed as a scientist for 30 years. Today he is appreciated largely for his contributions to logic, mathematics, philosophy, scientific methodology, andsemiotics, and for his founding of pragmatism.An innovator in mathematics, statistics, philosophy, research methodology, and various sciences, Peirce considered himself, first and foremost, a logician. He made major contributions to logic, but logic for him encompassed much of that which is now called epistemology and philosophy of science. He saw logic as the formal branch of semiotics, of which he is a founder. As early as 1886 he saw that logical operations could be carried out by electrical switching circuits; the same idea that was used decades later to produce digital computers.[11]

                                                      The apperance of  Charles Sanders Peirce 

My further comments on this:

Movement in space and time
For ex you can measure the room with your sences You can feel the wall when you stand close to it It talks to our sences probably with material energy that is moving You can almost hear the sound of the wall More obviously appearance has for example a smell that can show you how to walk in the room etc It can give you a scheme how to move and then you also can make people move in a specific way with a smell in the room then its an method that can be developed by architects planning in space 
There is the wall and there is also the metaphor of the wall Two alike and different things In reality you can move in the room with your body and in your mind you can move with the metaphors in different way The metaphor has its own language and can appear in a semiotic way ( see Pierce ) I ts with the metaphor our senses and feelings mind and brain connects and effects with the wall. It’s a division of the thought-feeling-action-intelligence
This can turn in to a method with who we can learn and treansform in space and time
It is nearly connected to our bodies today Not necessary in a holistic view wich is more something you move forward to So you can create with metaphors many different rooms in your mind Every room can have different appaerence and play a differenr role in the research Then you also can fins what is rare, and there is where my interest are, by a excluding process
This is how a transformed the classic grammar into my female point of view Of course you have to know the rules first to change the whats in it Somehow Im sorry that he School only told part of the story when I was a student But we don’t have to repeat those mistakes for ex now when we write scripts and algoritms exploring the advanced technology around construction business for ex Fluid dynamics for ex how a drop of water affects an airplane wing But have to find limits how we can explore he female suggestions,to do it relevant I wont forget Queer etc

Other methods is for ex to study history of image letters language So to say semiotic and semantic that I think should be holistic point of view but for science you divide it

That’s whrere the images of a Bison in French caves wellknown in arthistory gives us a clou. I see the Bison on the wall of the cave as image and letters put together more like hieroglyphs Art is its own language With an own inner logic and grammar Architecture is also its own language, autonom. But today we find connections between them in metaphors in mind and that’s were the Bison and caves lead us. It ´s close connected to Homo Ludens
There is always something to split in the whole a method wellknown from postmodernism that we explore here

Digital version

There are some populistcs thougt about caves in postmodernism and archeologi today I think its necessary to find methods like this with LA MODULOR to explain the apperamce of the Bison today and to transform the old grammar of architecture to a more female statement. A balance with mens appearance in architecture and science etc, in the built society and materia etc from a womans point of veiw 

Otherwise we will create empty rooms.

A photo and a drawing – French bagatelles 

I will now focus on places in the memory that gives us the reason to create sites. Not obviously sites with built houses in material with its form and history and as an architect try to coop with that when you do your own proposal in architecture I think the site is more influenced by our own experience in life and how for ex how our senses has reflective them.
It’s a site in the memory I lived on 6ème étage in Paris seventh arrondissementTogether with other foreigners in Paris near Place Blanche A big family from a French colony were a child was born in when I lived there and the proud father sat in the telephone all the time I think that was his only space he had in this little room Lucie who had been a prostituted under to world war could speak many languages, She have a picture of a soldier on her wall. I ask who he was and she said it was her husband The French houslord was married to a 40 year younger American baletdancer that had travel all over the world with her dancecompany She had the so called Cat room up o 6ème étage a room with a bed and a table and lots lots of pictures on cats. And lots of other lovely people. I still have a suitcase there in the cellar. My room was the only room that had to Cockroaches It was here I started my transformation 

Only 100 meter from this house on Rue the Bruxelles it was a little park I passed it every day It was almost no one sitting there Maybe there was a sofa The vegetation was surrounded with an fence It had a shadow over it The wind stood still there I always had a quick look at it

Last week when I was reading Walter Benjamin Walter Benjamin planned many journeys with his friends but he always cancelled them just before he was go
 I saw a dusty pictures of a park and a road and suddenly I recognise that it was the same park at my road in Paris Walter Benjamin had seen it. I was amazed the Park at its site cant be dead or sleeping it must be something with it

Absolutely in the history our senses had about the same experience but in different times 

Somehow he also lived far away from the bookstores in Marais.

I think that the artist is absolutelt unsecure maybe scepticIt’s a big problem for him to be a part of a social life He can ve ignorant paranoid to sensitive etc 

But the picture in the book made me believe in my senses he couldn’t cheat on me with this observation of a park I believed in what I saw We had probably over some time the same picture in our memory

I couldn’t hesitate the pictures about gallerias in Paris in the same book This well known architecture that made a great impact on me

When I come home from Paris I was sitting in an architectural office in Old Town in Stockholm The head of the office bent over me at my table and said very fast -Can you do some sketches for a galleria in Stockholm Its going to look a little as Old Town. - I return to you tomorrow.

I did these sketches very fast:

Paris cafés restaurants shops was strong in my memory It was a lively and a live culture Old town seems to me a bit picturesque I wondered would a modern galleria look like some old places Maybe not. The office was famous because they produces what was called pastiches.

The day after the head of the office, the businessman, came to me He showed me that he was disappointed and told me that he was going to do his sketches himself. Now its built and I leave you to your pictures inside about the place, Sturegallerian.

Later I have to have out with my chef by recommend him some books that was my point of view I never know if he understood

I will 29 years later put it on a another site my website and the virtual world seems banal compared to humans inner life and its sites

I stay with this, leave any analyses to the reader and for a discussion I like the reader to do that himself this time with the pictures and storys behind and leave you alone with my 2 bagatelles.
