This study uses an adaptation of Ken Wilber’s four quadrant model to evaluate the parallel evolution of human consciousness and architectural morphology from its inception through pre-modern, modern and post-modern periods. To conclude, it postulates that we are on the brink of integral consciousness and sets forth the theoretical framework for an integral morphology.

The development of consciousness (UL) coevolves with the complexification of

matter (UR). Atoms, whose exterior forms are physical entities such as neutrons,

protons and electrons, have an interior prehension of proto-feelings; primitive cells

exhibit irritability; organisms with neural cords have perception; animals with the

reptilian brain stem have impulses and instincts, and the triune brain is the exterior form

of an interior consciousness that contains linguistic capacities and formal cognition
(Wilber, Integral Spirituality 222). Consciousness exists in some form (however

rudimentary) at all organizational levels- every body has a mind. (See Figure 2B)
