The purpose of this publication was to discuss the use of metaphor in architectural creativity and apply that understanding in the making of the Lubbock Art Gallery. Moreover, it proposed that the Lubbock Art Gallery would be designed using the metaphor of family. It showed that the overall conceptual structure of the tennfami/y could be used in organizing the overall building form and space. The intangible qualities that determine the essence of the family were recognized and transferred to the building. Therefore, the Lubbock Art Gallery was made "alive" and the spirit it possesses (in this case the family has become the spirit of its existence) would live forever.
