Yes..I think its a good effort..
But I am not an architect....
I was also interested in the possibilities of "negative space" for some time, as above....
But I think that this approach is not too popular with the professional community, perhaps because fundamentally, it simply
derives from the originals, which were not, apparently , to the taste
On that level, also, I noticed that the new proposals generally avoid "classical" in favor of "dynamic" symmetry; which, I would assume, inasmuch as these two formats oscillate in design over periods of decades, means that we are now in a regime of fractured, off-balance and unstructured structure.
So anything which has formal symmetry (as with your spiral-arm
plan) is probably out of the running for awhile....
Of course, it may take "awhile" for anything to be resolved about the site...
By the way, it would perhaps be interesting to compare the two main types of architectural symmetry, with their counterparts in molecular physics; I wonder if the "energy states" associated with assymetric structures are not higher than with symmetric ones...
