Rigors and complexity

"Complexity is achieved by recursive repetition of a simple rule from which stems the structure's geometry and detail. Within this complexity modularity and repetition are preserved and hierarchies order and govern process of fabrication and construction
Complexity is latent order not chaos. It keeps the eye in constant search for that hidden rule that moves and is lost within this spiralling patterns of lines that surround you.
And finally complexity generates pattern and ornament, tectonic in its nature and therefore indiscernible from the structure."
