This particular article focuses on and discusses certain texts that have been utilized and are still being utilized for supporting and defining specific practices of architecture. The key point by which the discussion has been started is focused on the text Genius Loci that had been stated by Christian Norberg- Schulz that was diverted towards a phenomenology related to architecture. Amongst several other related personalities, this has been considered as an extremely useful way to make an approach towards this particular subject. According to Edquist, the suggestion can be found in the title itself that an old trope has been brought together by Norberg- Schulz (Edquist 1988). It can also be stated that for fulfilling the key purpose to be followed for this paper, shorter piece has been chosen as to what has been expressed and stated by Norberg- Schulz in Genius Loci.
The concept of double character has been given huge importance within this particular article. In addition to this, in a spatial manner, Rome can be said to be expressing the concept of double character. There is an involvement of two spatial orders within the concept of double character that are the axial organization and the vernacular clusters that are rooted of dwellings. The marks that can be found by the point of intersection of both of these spatial order has been considered as the basic elements involved in the architecture of Rome as per Norberg- Schulz (Edquist 1988). In consideration with this particular point, the result seems to be a good one for the nation of Rome.
According to this particular article, it has been stated that Norberg- Schulz has high significance with respect to the phase being passed that contributes in making it as the original form of genius loci coming back to life. As per the author, Norberg- Schulz seems to be going at length for providing a description of the vernacular nature being held by the buildings of Rome that contributes in the formation of a base related to the chthonic (Edquist 1988). There are a number of points that are extremely bizarre, considering to what has been stated and put forward in genius loci by Norberg- Schulz.
