"It is important to impart a sense of 'fascination with architecture'. to produce an engagement with the world and with other people. But, the impetus of that fascination is validated when it conveys one beyond a position of review and reflection, to an operation of engagement. Not because participation is more "real" than non-participation, but because direct engagement produces a system of contacts and shifting relationships that can only be experienced in a bodily way. The 'varying fractals' of jencks is for us not just a geometric structure, but also a combinational, permutational milieu of events, effects and relationships that can not be understood prior to engagement."
