Shiva as Lord of the Dance Nataraja

Charles Moore was a famous American architect active from 1940s to 1990s, an excellent architecture educator and one of the typical representatives of American postmodernism. Charles Moore has abundant experience of education and practice experience, loyal to the thought of “functional” in modern architecture, summarizes the construction should pay attention to the historical context, traditional culture, the development of the building is as an integral part of the history and exist, standing in the camp of the modern architecture, Moore as vanguard force, starting from the basic needs of people, attention to the spatial experience of the body, perception and emotional think architecture is itself the carrier directly. Moore studies the organizational logic of architectural space, and his works have a distinctive humanistic atmosphere. More than just homes, Moore’s houses convey the spirit of a combination of traditional and indigenous cultures. Orinda’s home takes its form from the original cottages and the forms of mayan and Hindu shrines. In 1959, Moore designed his own home in Orinda, California, with the conde Trenton baths on the floor plan and the overhanging pyramid roof. Three years later, two squares and two pyramid roofs were added to the interior of the cottage. This time the influence was not on the Kang but on the Heavenly Mansion, a way for Moore to discuss the temple’s importance in architectural history. The “temple” is formally a small attic or dome, usually supported by four pillars, and often combined with other “temples” to form a more robust architectural combination. “Temple” itself has many styles of shadow, gothic style, traditional style, Mongolian style, Indian style, etc. Moore’s “temple” was an asymmetric pyramidal body, each supported by four round wooden pillars recovered from the site. The inside of the pyramid’s vertebral body is painted white to reflect the sky light from the roof, and the wooden skin blurs the pyramid more like a fence than a dimly lit stone roof. So the temple creates a special atmosphere that is bigger than the ordinary interior space. The functional rest area, small but surprising open bathroom, like a modern version of the ancient Roman bathroom. The space around the temple is filled with relaxing furniture and objects, a changing room with museum pieces that contrast with the walls, a double bedroom with a tall bookcase and a grand piano. The thick, heavy walls take up almost half the space. The rest of the light door frame, there are real and virtual. There are no posts in the corners, so when the door opens, the whole room becomes an open pavilion in the middle of a lawn surrounded by green trees. Moore House in Orinda / Charles Moore.
