Like every ordinary object the universal archetype of a house carries hidden meanings. What is it that makes it the archetype of the house? The angle of its roof.
Greek island architecture overcomes such traditional associations and rules. It freely combines all desired pieces and produces its own hybrid archetypes; complex, playful, mysterious, roughly constructed but rich in meaning. The unexpected union of an angular roof with a dome automatically turns a house for humans or birds into a house for the spirit.
The simple addition of a curve on the roof proves that every house hides a church, just as every church is a house to begin with.
