Bangs argues that today's dysfunctional buildings bring out the worst in humanity, and shows how, through the ancient laws of proportion and number, architecture once expressed the sacred relationship between man and the cosmos.He provides the key to freeing architecture from crude 20th-century functionality: modern architects must find the deep-felt connection to the cosmos that guided the inner lives of those who built the temples of the past.
