2) to supply an anthropological basis to the design of the human habitat, urban or rural and thus to avoid the present endless heterogeneity of -> Styles in architectural design
One of the basic characteristics of Anthrop-Arch is the re-evaluation of 'value-focussed' axial systems related to human movement and rest. Such 'value-focussed' axial systems were the basic common denominator of all pre-modern architecture, but were destroyed by the introduction of functionalism and spatial concepts borrowed from physics.
Anthrop-Arch designs with -> Timeless structures (fundamental principles of space and form). Such timeless structures are: -> Timeless structure of vertical form (vertical polarity scheme), Timeless structure of horizontal form (access-place-scheme).
This design system leaves the architect with his full freedom, but brings his design back into the human architectural tradition.
