The treatises of Durand on architecture were studied in order to set them in a wider context. An attempt was made to demystify the negative image of Durand by presenting an honest judgement and a new interpretation. Many paradoxical statements were discovered, and discussed in the light of modern architecture. Seen from the topical architecture debate, a new image appeared, making Durand's theory transparent by the confrontation with those of some philosophers and architects today.
