Power & Hierarchy - Looking up!
State buildings serve the governmental and legislative purposes of society often being designed to convey a sense of grandeur and an expression of Power and Hierarchy. The Bank of England is a good example and it also has a piece of statuary reminding the public of military success and imperial power. Commercial buildings are often designed to give a sense of permanence, strength, and trustworthiness. Like state buildings, they convey a message of Power and Hierarchy with the locale of the buildings forcing people to look up as though in an act of obeisance. Some of the buildings also have secret (or not so secret!) messages of dominance and control particularly of a sexual nature.
