I am not really sure that I understand your point.

But- as I have mentioned many times on this forum- I believe there is an irreconcilable contradiction (perhaps neurological) between, on the one hand, the pleasure the right-brain gets at viewing a diagonalised structure because it is therefore strong, and, on the other , the displeasure experienced by the left-brain viewing the same structure, because triangulations are inherently disturbing to the visual cortex.

So: Engineer: "Triangulation- good! "
Architect: "Triangulation - bad!"
