The forms of built environment are not always and everywhere determined by commodity, firmness and delight but are also regulated by meaning: in many traditions symbolism dictates architectures composition, sitting, orientation, geometry, proportion and ornament. In such traditions the built form is an imago mundi; it expresses a world view and embodies a teleogy; it models the manner in which existences derive from their Ultimate Principle, how the manifold is manifested in the One.
