This article has at its heart addressing the question of how contemporary architecture interlocks in its design concept the past and the present. Its analysis echoes in doing so Juhani Pallasmaa’ s perspective, which its theory calls for “the flesh of the world” centered on “continuum” of the cultural values into a contemporary architecture. Yet, how a “continuum” occurs lies in the “artistic work” arisen as a result of the intersection occurred between “the world” and the “oneself” as well as between the “external space” and the “one’s inner mental space”. This article uses three design cases to apply Juhani Pallasmaa’ s perspective. Albeit differences, the three case study analyses suggest that the vernacular aspects of architecture embrace a model for the rationale of the “artistic work”.
