James Stirling quotes Milan critic Manfredo Tafuri, and cites that all his building fit into five categories. These categories include asymmetrical balance of accommodation, linear accommodation, the ‘L’ shaped building, the wrap around planning, and the building which turns around in on itself. Sterling discusses some of the exterior characteristics of his buildings including semi-embraced outdoor space, fixed public facade, repetition of a collection, and the exhibiting of vents symbolically, as well as others.
