Non Rational

Recently I've been looking at a lot of early to mid-20th century modernist architecture. This is the kind that was inspired by Le Corbusier to build pristine white box structures with big rectangular windows. These things are still being built today. They are supposed to be built along rational principles, for intelligent human beings who have gone beyond primitive stupidity, irrational beliefs, and the need to ornament their living quarters. 
My latest Dodson doodle is a take on one of these rectilinear modernist plans, but it kinda got out of hand. It's boxy and unornamented, but you can't find your way in. And if you somehow get in, you can't find your way out. It's perfectly rational though.
