ABSTRACT The present study aims to bring two state-of-the art and design school buildings in a comparative analysis. It departs from the idea that behind these two buildings, resides two distinct contemporary paradigmatic positions and two distinct mental orientations in architecture. The aim is to investigate perhaps two of the best epitomes of these distinct views of architecture in an objective comparative analysis would reveal the nature and mind of these two contemporary paradigmatic positions and shed light on the way we see and make architecture today.
