Quick Reference

Term invented in 1939 by the Austro-American Frederick J. Kiesler. He dismissed Functionalism as the ‘mysticism of hygiene’, and argued for an alternative visionary architecture related to spirals, infinity, and eternity. Forms he perceived as points where apparent known forces met invisible, secret, spiritual ones, and that reality was really the interaction of these forces. The nature of their relationships and of the connections between humans, forms, space, time, and the world he called Correalism.
